618Can't convert this file encoding...
- Apr 6, 2002Hello, VIM-gurus!
I have a multibyte-related question. Is this the right place to ask
such kind of questions?
There it is:
On certain files, after trying to perform file encoding conversion (:e
++enc=cp866, for example), I receive "Not converted" error, and the
file remains in wrong encoding. (VIM 6.1, iconv.dll - 423.640,
09.03.01 04:49, WinXP)
There is a small example: I can't open this two-line file (attached)
in VIM in the right encoding (cp866) and performing ":e ++enc=cp866"
command fails. It's interesting, that if I delete two chars from this
file (line 1 col 57 and line 2 col 40), and reload it after saving
changes (or use ":e ++enc=cp866" command) the file will be shown in
right encoding (cp866).
Can anyone explain me what's wrong there? If there are ways to _force_
file encoding conversion?

In general, they do what you want, unless you want consistency.
