DiffZilla: File Encoding is not accurate
« on: August 22, 2016, 11:47:00 pm »
When comparing two files, say one is ascii and the other is UTF-8, DZ complains about the encoding difference.

It says that the UTF-8 file "is a unicode file" and the other "is not".
It would be nice if DZ would say what the actual encoding is, such as UTF-8.


It offers to convert to "Text", but it isn't clear what encoding that is.


It would be great if:
Slick could default to the "better" encoding: Comparing text to Uncode: Auto-upconvert plain text to unicode.
Or "Ignore encoding only differences".
