Siebel 20: eScript Clib Fopen Function Always Creating File with Unicode Encoding (Doc ID 2693674.1)

Last updated on JULY 24, 2020

Applies to:

Siebel Tools - Version 20.5 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.

Symptoms

The files created by Clib.fopen() function in eScript are always Unicode after upgrade to Siebel 20.
The issue can be reproduced at will with the following steps:


1. Create a eScript as below code:
    var fp = Clib.fopen("abc.txt", "wt");
2. The "abc.txt" file is created with Unicode encoding

Changes

The following things were confirmed in the internal environment test.

In IP14
var fp = Clib.fopen("abc_wt.txt", "wt"); -> create the ANSI (encoding) file
var fp = Clib.fopen("abc_wu.txt", "wu"); -> create the Unicode (encoding) file

In IP20.5
var fp = Clib.fopen("abc_wt.txt", "wt"); -> create the UTF8 (encoding) file
var fp = Clib.fopen("abc_wu.txt", "wu"); -> create the Unicode (encoding) file

In the IP20.5 environment, the file is created with UTF8, but there should not be any problem in reading and writing ASCII data.
