Hi,
Could anyone give me some hint, as to how i can compare two files which are contain lines using the following encoding schemes:


US-ASCII
ISO-8859-1
UTF-8 Eight-bit
UTF-16BE Sixteen-bit
UTF-16LE Sixteen-bit
UTF-16 Sixteen-bit UCS


Let me know if further information is required.
I would appreciate ANY hint/help

Thanks,
-Kamal.

What do you mean by compare - do you want to know which lines are added or omitted from one or the other file (in which case one of the numerous "diff"-like tools would do the trick), or do you need to compare the contents of individual lines as well?

need to compare the contents of individual lines , one example of a line is:

WEBMETHODS: localhost ort - (WEBMETHODS.DEFAULT.TestComponentId.TestSubcomponentId) [TestComponentId.TestSubcomponentId.?] 2006-08-08 18:15:56.169 EDT INFO: ?


I could not paste the UTF-16 format here

OK, so say you have two lines that look just about like the one you posted - what should be the desired output? Would those two lines you're comparing be in the same file, or in different files?
