After DBIMPORT german 'Umlaute' are replaced by different characters
You probably run the Eloquence dbimport/dbexport utilities on
The Eloquence database utilities use different character sets encoding,
depending on the Platform. On HP-UX, the ROMAN8 character set encoding
is used, otherwise ISO8859/1.
If you intend to DBIMPORT a database on a Linux system that was
previously exported on a HP-UX system, you need to convert the
HPROMAN8 encoded export file to ISO8859/1 encodeing (and the other way round).
This may be managed by either using 'iconv' on the HP-UX platform or
recode –-v hp-roman8:ISO_8859-1 filename
recode –-v ISO_8859-1:hp-roman8 filename
iconf –-f roman8 –-t is08859_1 export > newexport
iconf –-f is08859_1 –-t roman8 export > newexport
Please refer to the corresponding man pages for details.
