I have been working on a parsing project. I've added in a chatlog to the program. What happens is that a set of log files are transfered from the primary file to the parser files then any chat is pushed up to the chatlog section of the parser. The problem I'm having is that some of the chat lines are originally in Japanese Hiragana. Which I'm assuming is converted to a unicode in the primary logs. When pushed out to the parser they will not show the JP chars. I've been working on trying to get it to push out the JP stuff without having any luck. Can anyone assist with this problem. The program is coded in VB6.
