Hello !

I would like to change an RSS script encoding from iso-8859-2 to UTF-8, so it's rendered proprely within phpnuke portal ( which is also UTF-Cool

Looking at php.net tutorials, i came up with a small script, which according to my fairly limited knowledge of php should work..

Code:
<?php


$lines = file('http://www.rtvslo.si/feeds/00.xml');

$feed=fopen("test.xml","w");
foreach ($lines as $line_num => $line) {
  $line= str_replace("encoding=\"iso-8859-2\"", "encoding=\"UTF-8\"", $line);
 
   echo "". htmlspecialchars($line) . "<br />\n";
   fprintf($feed, "" . htmlspecialchars($line) . "<br />\n");
   
}

fclose($feed);

?>


After trying to open test.xml i see this..

XML Parsing Error: not well-formed
Line Number 1, Column 1:&lt;?xml version=&quot;1.0&quot; encoding=&quot;UTF-8&quot;?&gt;
^

My question is whether there is any possibilty to make this work ?

Thanks, guys !

I am not sure it is possible to change the encoding 'on the fly'. I think you would have to first decode to the original encoding and either store it temporarily as a temp file or data construct like a $variable and use that as the base for the new encoding to re-encode it.
Or find out what the exact character differences are between the two and write something to work with that.

Well, what i am trying to do here is read from the encoding..
change the header ( and if required all other necessary characters ) and then save it as some other file..

The thing is when i attempt to save it to another file, which would be then the modified feed phpnuke would use, but i keep on getting this error.. xml feed is not well formatted.... I am wondering why this keeps on happening... and also
whether this "export" method can be actually modified so it does what i want it to ?

thanks for your replies

OK. I have managed to look through php.net manual a bit and realise what foolish mistakes i have made Embarassed .

It works OK now..

I just decided to post the code i used. I might be of some use to someone..

Code:
<?php


// open the RSS feed you wish to use

$lines = file('http://www.rtvslo.si/feeds/00.xml');

//file, where the new RSS will be..
$feed=fopen("test.xml","w");

foreach ($lines as $line_num => $line) {

// replace all the characters with the appropriate ones

  $line= str_replace("encoding=\"iso-8859-2\"", "encoding=\"UTF-8\"", $line);
  $line= str_replace("ľ", "ž", $line);
  $line= str_replace("ą", "š", $line);
  $line= str_replace("č", "č", $line);
  $line= str_replace("©", "Š", $line);
  $line= str_replace("®", "Ž", $line);
   
   //outputs to the file
   
fprintf($feed, "%s", $line);
}

fclose($feed);

?> 


Thanks again for snappy response..
