encoding…

another headache with GoldenCheetah. trying to implement a new feature – support for iBike CSV files. these files have a bunch of configuration data at the top, which is easy enough to skip, but for some reason the QTextStream::readLine() function is loading the entire file rather than line 1 (at least according to what i gather from gdb).

i’d figured that it was a line endings thing (\r rather than \n or \r\n) however changing up the line endings in both a GUI editor nor via the command line (cat oldfile.csv | tr “\r” “\n” > newfile.csv) corrected the problem.

opening the file in TextWrangler, replacing the line endings AND trimming the trailing zeros from the data DOES work though…so what else is going on here? is the regex replacing other hidden characters? is the file write process doing something?

at the very least, i’m getting more comfortable with gdb.
