batch converting from ansi to utf-8 with the s&r files tool

Postby CodeChegga » Wed Jan 27, 2016 2:57 pm

Hello Experts,

is there in WeBuilder a batch converting from ansi to utf-8 with the "search & replace in files" and dirs function possible or do have any nice idea to to that with webuilder with bulk of html/php in my complet webdirectory.

So i am replacing with reg expression <META content="text/html; charset=[^>]+>
the meta key to
<META content="text/html; charset=utf-8" http-equiv=Content-Type>
on that way it would be perfect to save the files automatically from ansi in utf-8 coding?

thanks for help & ideas


actually i am testing

I don't think you can batch-convert easily with WeBuilder, even with plugins, but maybe you can write a PHP script for that (if you're familiar with PHP, of course). You could use Replace in Files to batch-replace the meta tag, but that would not convert the special characters in files from ANSI to UTF-8.
