what is your codepage?

Post by nikos » 2014 Nov 06, 17:21

my character codepage (greek) is 1253. I think most western europe and USA use 1252? If you are in the UK, Germany, France or USA and you can tell me your codepage I'd use it for some warning messages. If you don't know what a codepage is never mind :)

IBM-437, IBM-850, IBM-1252
