AW: [cdt-dev] character encoding problems

Hi Toni,

thanks for offering support.

As for "my" sourcefile in  157112 I have changed the offending Umlauts from my name to plain ASCII.

Is there an eclipse-internal way to convert to UTF-8. I don't know of any tool which can do it.

There are two solutions:

1. convert the files to valid UTF-8 and also mark 
   them as UTF-8 in the project preferences

2. replace the offending characters with plain ASCII.

I'd prefer option 1 and I could also do the conversion
if nobody objects.

BTW, it is probably a JVM-dependent issue how
the builtin decoding methods handle encoding problems.
The Sun JVM on Windows replaces malformed input bytes
and unmappable characters by default (as e.g. in Charset#decode()),
instead of reporting errors.
