show BOM of international text file

Post by nikos » 2021 Feb 20, 15:41

talking about advanced usage...
If you are into international text, you can use the programmable column (Ultimate xplorer2 edition) with this formula to see which files are hard-coded as UTF-8 or Unicode

Code: Select all

if(fbytes(0,2)="FF.FE",uc16, if(fbytes(0,3)="EF.BB.BF",utf8,""))
and then you'll see UC16 or UTF8 next to the text file that has byte-order-mark
xplorer2 can do casual, and can also do power if you need it :party:
