but i reads ok the files after.

how can i make all the files to same encoding so that they appear readable



Download Notepad++ and there is an option to change the encoding of one or many files.

  • Notepad++ is a really good suggestion for this - you can see the encoding of each file and easily change it. – jtreser Apr 18 '10 at 3:18

iconv will let you batch-convert the character set used by the files.
