I am trying to modify a buffer written by
desktop-save to a file. The file is named
.emacs.desktop and I am trying to modify it from a Perl script. It turns out that it is saved in
M-x list-coding-systems :
U -- utf-8 (alias: mule-utf-8) UTF-8 (no signature (BOM)) M -- emacs-mule Emacs 21 internal format used in buffer and string.
I would like to read the file in Perl as
UTF-8, how can this be done?
(I would prefer a solution that does not depend on a running Emacs server)
emacs-mule saves the letter
æ as two bytes
0x81 0xe6, ISO Latin 1 saves it as a single byte
0xe6, whereas UTF-8 saves it as two bytes
0xc3 0xa6.. )
