Unicode Support

File System Unicode Support

 

FileLocator Pro is built with the Windows Unicode libraries and therefore supports searching of the file system with full Unicode support.

 

 

Content Searching Unicode Support

 

Content searching of files processed by extensions (such as IFilters) supports Unicode searching if the underlying format supports Unicode.

 

Text file searching supports Unicode if the file can be identified as Unicode, either by a Byte Order Marker (BOM) or an XML encoding declaration at the beginning of an XML file. The Unicode types supported are UTF-16LE, UTF-16BE, and UTF-8.

 

Binary searching of non-identifiable file types, such as EXE etc., is carried out using an ASCII search unless otherwise specified in the UTF-8 Default Format settings.
