digitalmars.D.learn - Unicode -> Windows 1252

I have a D2 code that writes some stuff to the screen (usually runs in 
cmd.exe pseudo-console). When I print spanish characters they show wrong 
(gibberish symbols and so, wich corresponds to CP-1252 encoding).

Is there a way to convert all outputted streams to CP-1252 without 
having to wrap writeln function (and replacing all its calls)?

TIA,

Tried a bunch of values and all yields the same result. Thanks anyway.

Forget it, I'll just use chcp...

You probably already know this, but you can do that programmatically: import std.process; void main() { system("chcp 1252"); }

Yeah. And by the way, SetConsoleOutputCP(65001) worked! Don't know what I did the first time I tried it. Another question: is there a way to hook a function or delegate before every output of the program, so I can filter the output in some way? Tom;

Otherwise you might be interested in using the WinAPI library from

Mmh, the whole winapi just for that seems a little too much. :S

Sorry, 65001 is actually UTF-8 or UTF-7 IIRC. For CP-1252 you'll have
to find the correct value, I guess.

My utility library has a console I/O module that converts to/from the console codepage under Windows: http://pr.stewartsplace.org.uk/d/sutil/ See if it's useful to you. I'm not sure whether it works under D2, but it's probably quite straightforward to tweak it so that it does. Stewart.

Thanks! I'll give it a try. Tom;
