File encoding is not the same as EncodingType


The generated file is in ANSII and not in encoding define in EncodingType.
I think you could add _encoding to File.WriteAllText on CompressorTask.cs line 428

It's hard to check a file's encoding type. The easier way I know is to open the file with Notepad++ and to see what encoding is selected. For most encoding (UTF8, Unicode BigEndian ...) the encoding type is given by the bom (the first 4 bytes of the file).
Like it was reported by lcalvy,
                              compressedText == null ? string.Empty : compressedText.ToString(),_encoding);
do the trick.

Here is my CompressorTask.cs file. The modifications are the following :
  • Write the file using the specified encoding
  • New value for encoding : keep/keepencoding/pinte. Use the encoding of the first file for reading and writing.
These modifications are in prod for two weeks and we have no problem with them.

I forgot to mention that this was for the Model project, I did not change the .net 2.0 project.

Ok. Code updated. Not sure how to really test it (with Unit Tests) though :( When the next build comes out, hopefully you can check/confirm that this is now fixed, guys :)
