In D2000 System there are the functions (actions) that work with the text files which could be encoded in other code than UTF-8. This feature is defined by encoding parameter which determines the method of conversion to be applied when reading or writing to a text file.

ESL functions supports these character encoding:

Encoding Synonyms
Windows-1250 Windows_1250
Windows-1251 Windows_1251
Windows-1252  Windows_1252 
ISO-8859-1 IEC_8859-1, iso-ir-100, csISOLatin1, latin1, l1, IBM819, CP819
KZ-1048 KZ_1048
UTF-8      *1) UTF_8, UTF8
UTF-8;BOM    *1) UTF_8;BOM, UTF8;BOM
UTF-16LE    *1) UTF_16LE, UTF16LE
UTF-16BE    *1) UTF_16BE, UTF16BE
@OS_ACTUAL@    *2)  
@APP_DEFAULT@    *3)  
Binary    *4)  

Note 1:
When using UTF-8 and UTF-16, there is possible to specify whether "BOM (Byte Order Mark)" is to be put at the beginning of output file. If there is defined for example "UTF-8" encoding, the mark is not put. If there is "UTF-8;BOM", the mark is put in the file. If BOM is in the file which is read, the identification of file encoding will be applied and BOM will be ignored.

Note 2:
The current encoding of operation system on which the process runs.

Note 3:
Initial encoding of application, which is set by the parameter for D2000 Server. It is global for all processes.

Note 4:
This encoding is equivalent to ISO-8859-1 but when reading / writing from / to a file, all bytes remain unchanged. It means, BOM mark is not ignored and the end of rows are not normalized.
