I have an application that requires an import file encoded as UTF8
with a leading BOM.
After examining some working files with proper encoding in BBedit I
have concluded that the BOM seems to consist of three characters, so
I thought I could just concatenate those with the actual data and
write to file, like this:
set myBom to ((ASCII character 239) & (ASCII character 187) & (ASCII
set myString to "Hej Hå"
set myCS to myBom & myString
set myTestFile to (open for access file "Macintosh
HD:Users:richardr:Desktop:tjong.txt" with write permission)
write myCS to myTestFile as «class utf8»
close access myTestFile
However, neither that, nor any other combination I can think of
seems to do the trick.
What am I missing?
I would write the BOM as ASCII:
write myBom to myTestFile
write myString to mytestFile as «class utf8»
