How to Create ANSI file using C# RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello Everyone,

    I have  to create an ANSI file using C#.

    My real problem is I have a File in ANSI  enconding format comming from a Linux API(I do not have access to this machine, I just may use the API)

    and I need to create a copy of this file and change the content of this new file.

    The problem is, I do a copy of this file and it keeps the enconding howerver when I try to clear the content of this file to write the new content it changes automatically the encondig of this new file.

    These are my steps:

    1) Make Copy the ANSI FIle (ok)

    File.Copy("source.txt", "new_file.txt");

    2)Erase the content of this new file

    File.WriteAllText("new_file.txt", string.Empty, Encoding.Default);

    In this point it has changed the enconding of this new file

    Please, someone has an idea about this issue?
