I'm guessing you're right, in that the accents aren't being translated properly as I don't recall seeing them on the translation matrix. 

I will take a look when I have time -I can't make any promises when that might be  :|

After all the issues i'm having with Sheet Set coding inside Autocad, I'm starting to think that DST to XML and back would be a better approach.

Not really sure until i try it :)

Ok, so I want to try to do this in my own code and in my own way, but I guess I am not understanding how to figure out what translates to what, here is the code I have:
Code: [Select]
dim dst as FolderItem = SpecialFolder.Desktop.Child("Sample.dst")
dim Results as String

dim enc() as Integer = Array(0,1,2,3,4,5,6,7,10,11,12,13,14,15,16,17,20,21,22,23,24,25,26,27,30,31,32,33,34,35,36,37,40,41,42,43,44,45,46,47,50,51,52,53,54,55,56,57,60,61,62,63,64,65,66,67,70,71,72,73,74,75,76,77,100,101,102,103,104,105,106,107,110,111,112,113,114,115,116,117,120,121,122,123,124,125,126,127,130,131,132,133,134,135,136,137,140,141,142,143,144,145,146,147,150,151,152,153,154,155,156,157,160,161,162,163,164,165,166,167,170,171,172,173,174,175,176,177,200,201,202,203,204,205,206,207,210,211,212,213,214,215,216,217,220,221,222,223,224,225,226,227,230,231,232,233,234,235,236,237,240,241,242,243,244,245,246,247,250,251,252,253,254,255,256,257,260,261,262,263,264,265,266,267,270,271,272,273,274,275,276,277,300,301,302,303,304,305,306,307,310,311,312,313,314,315,316,317,320,321,322,323,324,325,326,327,330,331,332,333,334,335,336,337,340,341,342,343,344,345,346,347,350,351,352,353,354,355,356,357,360,361,362,363,364,365,366,367,370,371,372,373,374,375,376,377)
dim dec() as Integer = Array(214,213,216,215,210,207,212,211,204,203,206,205,200,177,202,201,174,173,176,175,170,167,172,171,164,163,166,165,160,157,162,161,254,253,256,255,250,247,252,251,244,243,246,245,240,237,242,241,234,233,236,235,230,227,232,231,224,223,226,225,220,217,222,221,314,313,316,315,310,307,312,311,304,303,306,305,300,277,302,301,274,273,276,275,270,267,272,271,264,263,266,265,260,257,262,261,354,353,356,355,350,347,352,351,344,343,346,345,340,337,342,341,334,333,336,335,330,327,332,331,324,323,326,325,320,317,322,321,14,13,16,15,10,7,12,11,4,3,6,5,0,377,2,1,374,373,376,375,370,367,372,371,364,363,366,365,360,357,362,361,54,53,56,55,50,47,52,51,44,43,46,45,40,37,42,41,34,33,36,35,30,27,32,31,24,23,26,25,20,17,22,21,114,113,116,115,110,107,112,111,104,103,106,105,100,77,102,101,74,73,76,75,70,67,72,71,64,63,66,65,60,57,62,61,154,153,156,155,150,147,152,151,144,143,146,145,140,137,142,141,134,133,136,135,130,127,132,131,124,123,126,125,120,117,122,121)

dim t as TextInputStream
  t = TextInputStream.Open(dst)
  Results = t.ReadAll
  for x as integer = 0 to Dec.Ubound
    Results = Results.ReplaceAll(chr(enc(x)), chr(dec(x)))
  next x
catch e as IOException
end try


For those that might know it, I am using a programming language called XOJO and if I can figure out how to pull it off, the ReplaceAll function would be much faster than going through each character.

At this point, I am thinking that I really just need help with figuring out what character maps to what, although I keep seeing things in here about Octal to Decimal and not quite sure what that is about either. And maybe I am trying to oversimplify this.

I figured it out, I was indeed trying to oversimplify things, but I know have code that seems to work very quickly.
