Character encoding for script
« on: October 20, 2013, 05:23:53 pm »
Hello,
Many thanks for the great program.
I've started to write an import script for japanese site (EUC-JP encoding) and I've noticed a strange thing.
I cannot use japanese character in PosFrom.
Os: Windows 8, PVD 1.0.2.6, the script file saved with encoding utf-8.
Code: [Select]
  StartPos := Pos('<table border="0" cellpadding="2" cellspacing="0" class="mg-b20">', HTML);
  StartPos := PosFrom('">レーベル:</td>', HTML, StartPos);
    Cast := Trim(TextBetween(HTML, '>', '<', False, StartPos));
  if Cast <> '----' then
  begin
    CastURL := BASE_URL + Trim(TextBetween(HTML, 'href="', '"', False, StartPos));
    Cast := Trim(TextBetween(HTML, '">', '<', False, StartPos));
    LogMessage('writer: '+ Cast +', url: '+ CastURL);
    AddMoviePerson(Cast, '', '', CastURL, 2);
  end else
    LogMessage('writer not found');

Make sure to provide a correct code page in GetCodePage function
Code: [Select]
function GetCodePage : Cardinal;
begin
 Result := CODE_PAGE;
end;

I provided a code page in GetCodePage function (EUC-JP 20932).
You can search with keyword 'mgod0112' with attached script file.
I use writer item for film series info. The writer item didn't show after running the script.
Thank you for your help!

There seem to be multiple problems (the program was never tested with such languages):
1. There is a problem when passing data to the script. I will fix it in next update
2. The pascal script compiler does not accept non ANSI characters. This can't be fixed, unless the pascal script compiler is updated. As a workaround you could try saving values in japanese in a file and load them in runtime. (but the first problem must be fixed for this to work)

Please give me an example code for saving japanese values in a file and load them in runtime.
Many thanks for your help and PVD v1.0.2.7!

To find ">レーベル:</td> from your example do the following:
1. Create a file (for exmple value1.txt) in the "PVD Path\Scripts" directory
2. Put ">レーベル:</td> into the file and save it with UTF8 Encoding with BOM
3. Replace the line where you search for this text with the following line:
Code: [Select]
StartPos := PosFrom(FileToString(GetAppPath + 'Scripts\value1.txt'), HTML, StartPos);So the value is replaced with: FileToString(GetAppPath + 'Scripts\value1.txt')

Thanks nostra for example code. Finally, the script works well.
Is there any possible way that saving multiple japanese values in one txt file and load them in runtime?

You can save multiple values in the same file, load the file to a string and then split it into separate values using String manipulation functions.
