Problem with Traditional and Simplified Chinese parsing in Pharo

Clément Bera-4
Hi,

I am currently parsing lua and JSON-like file in Pharo. They contain both Simplified and Traditional Chinese characters for comments and for strings displayed in the UI. Lua files are parsed correctly. However the JSON-like files aren't.

In attachment I put one of the problematic file with Simplified chinese characters (I've also copied the file at the end of the mail). The problem can be shown as follow in Pharo:

'schinese.txt' asFileReference readStream contents

The contents function sends a UTF8InvalidText 'Invalid utf8 input detected' error.
However my text editor correctly displays the file and it is correctly parsed by the Lua runtime (The program parsed has been deployed in production for years and works fine).

What can I do to parse this file correctly from Pharo ?

Thanks,

Below is the file content, non Chinese people may not have the font to display the characters, note that I have no idea what is written in Chinese (Please don't hold me responsible if there are offending contents):

"lang"
{
"Language" "Schinese"
"Tokens"

Re: Problem with Traditional and Simplified Chinese parsing in Pharo

Guillermo Polito
Are you sure that the file is encoded in utf8? Can you try

stream := ZnCharacterReadStream on: (File named: '...') readStream encoding: 'utf8'.
stream upToEnd.

?

If that does not work, it could mean that the file is in another encoding...

Your file is not in UTF-8 but in UTF-16 !

This will do:

(FileLocator desktop / 'schinese.txt') readStreamDo: [ :in |
  (ZnCharacterReadStream on: in binary encoding: #utf16) upToEnd ].

BTW, this is not valid JSON.

From Windows, for sure ...

Hi,

Here is how we manage encoding in Moose following Sven's advices.

We detect the encoding of a file with this code:

[ self fileReference binaryReadStreamDo: [ :in | (ZnCharacterEncoder
detectEncoding: in upToEnd) identifier ] ]
        on: ZnCharacterEncodingError
        do: [ nil ]

It is not bullet proof but I never got a problem since we use it.

Then to read a file we do this:

self fileReference
        binaryReadStreamDo:
            [ :in | (ZnCharacterReadStream on: in encoding: self
encoding) upToEnd ]

Here, self encoding return the result of the previous snippet.

Or you can use it this way:

ZnCharacterEncoder detectEncoding: ((FileLocator desktop / 'some.data')
binaryReadStreamDo: [ :in | in upToEnd ]).

(FileLocator desktop / 'some.data') binaryReadStreamDo: [ :in |
        | bytes encoder |
        bytes := in upToEnd.
        encoder := ZnCharacterEncoder detectEncoding: bytes.
        encoder decodeBytes: bytes ].

Thanks all, Sven solution works.

Yes this is not JSON it's some kind of JSON-like format (Is it yml ? I don't know it might be proprietary).

I was naive and thought there was some metadata in files precising the encoding used, and that #readStream on FileReference was able to pick automatically the correct decoder. Obviously it isn't the case.

Thanks anyway.

Your file is not in UTF-8 but in UTF-16 !

This will do:

(FileLocator desktop / 'schinese.txt') readStreamDo: [ :in |
