My father has a tonne of Spanish music, and much of it has strange
characters (non-ascii). He uses ‘windows’ (http://opensuse.org) XP pro
and I am not sure if it uses UTF-8 by default or not.
In anycase, I am trying to better understand UTF-8, character sets (et
al) because I am trying to back up all of his music using rsync to a
FreeNAS box. The file names get mangled, and I have run out of ideas.
I’ve tried a bunch of things that I won’t attempt to list right now. But
nothing has worked. The files, instead of returning like “this is a
song.mp3” come back as “this is a s<#033>ng.mp3” if the letter o in
‘song’ where a special character (non-ascii).
the other day I’m working on a bunch of his files, and the filenames
are mangled. I don’t know what charset (character set) the files names
are encoded (?) in. One of the files names includes a ñ which I added
deliberately in opensuse to “test” it to see if it would render find in
Konsole or not.
Ideas, comments (ps I was not sure where to post this…)
