Riff Blog:
Console encoding in PHP-GTK apps
November 20, 2006 @ 10:58:00

PHP-GTKers working in English-related applications, don't have a problem with debugging messages output to a console when debugging, but applications on a more international front have issues with their output. But help has been found in this new post on the Riff Blog - a method for correctly encoding PHP-GTK applications.

PHP scripts are typically stored under UTF-8 encoding to limit i18n headaches, while the console in which their output will be displayed is normally configured to some regional encoding, like IBM850 in Windows/XP French.

So we need a workaround...

He splits the process out into a few steps, each with its own explanation and code:

  • Builtin tools
  • Buffering
  • Flushing
  • PHP-GTK is not PHP for the Web
  • Auto-flushing
All wrapped up with a final solution - using the iconv functionality in combination with some output buffering to correctly display the message.
