We currently have a process which writes some dataset content out to the filesystem, then runs a script against it. Unfortunately, we sometimes need to change the code page for the file depending on server-specific settings (in other words, if the host is in, say, Sweden).
In the Write File operator, there is a File Encoding selector which enables you to set the character encoding for the file to be written. However, it's stored in a system variable and is not accessible to be modified in code - so trying to set Process[OpName].fileencoding yields an error like this:
Failed to evaluate pre-execution.
Failed to execute code:
Process[OpName].fileencoding = "UTF-16"
-- Editing of system variable "fileencoding" not allowed. (#2)
Has anyone else here tried to create a process which can dynamically set the file encoding for a new file? Is there maybe a different way to accomplish the same goal?
