I have a list of files with names written in what seems to be a written in VISCII or some East Asian format (I know the language is Vietnamese). I want to use
iconv to convert the filenames to UTF-8 but don't know what the current character set is. I've tried a few options and have gotten errors with
Here are some examples in the list of files:
1 2 3 CHIA ðÈI LÈýI V-¦_(831641).mid
CON ð¦i¦NG CHUýNG TA ðI_(829013).mid
HAÌY SÈýNG CU¦NG TI¦NH Y-U_(830818)
M-Y TI¦NH Y-U_(830639).mid
NG¦i¦I CHI-ýN SIÌ -ýY_(830491).mid
SAO CH¦A TH-ýY HÈ¦I -M (A)_(829702).mid
TR-N MAÊNH ð-ýT TI¦NH NG¦i¦I_(829041).mid
Conversion is supposed to turn out like this:
1 2 3 chia ðÈI LÈýI V-¦.mid
1 2 3 chia đôi lối về.mid
What is the best way to find the encoding? I've tried from
UTF-8 but nothing works.
FYI: I've installed the Vietnamese language pack and it seems to be working for some programs but for file explorer in Windows 10, it's not working. I'm thinking maybe change the default font to something that allows the character set, but I'd have to hack the registry in Windows 10.
