I receive some files with ASCII 160 characters (a acute (á) or unamovible space of Excel). I want to convert to spaces with TPIPE. Is it possible?
tpipe /input=infile.txt /output=outfile.txt /replace=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,"%@char","%@char"
tpipe /input=infile.txt /output=outfile.txt /replace=0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,"á"," "
but it doesn't work.
Does it work as expected if you use %@CHAR instead of the accented letter? Because I suspect you may be getting bitten by OEM-to-Unicode conversion, somewhere along the line.
(TCC uses Unicode internally, but characters from a batch file, or e.g. copied from the clipboard, can be in an OEM character set. And the conversions don't always work as you might expect.... And to muddy the waters further, console programs like TCC often use a different OEM character set than graphical programs like the text editor you use to write your batch file! Windows is a mess.)
