Additional Comments

Use the macToISO function to translate data that was created on a Mac OS system to the ISO 8859-1 character set used on Unix and Windows systems.

Parameters:

The macString is any string.

Value:

The macToISO function returns the macString, with characters whose ASCII value is greater than 127 converted to their equivalent in the ISO 8859-1 character set. Characters whose ASCII value is less than 128 are left unchanged.

Comments:

Revolution automatically translates text in fields and scripts, as well as the names of custom properties, into the appropriate character set when you move a stack from one platform to another. It is therefore not necessary to translate them. However, the contents of custom properties, since they may contain binary data, are not translated automatically and must be translated if they contain characters whose ASCII value is 128 or greater.

Characters whose ASCII value is less than 128 are the same in the Mac OS character set and ISO 8859-1, so they are not changed by the macToISO function. These characters include uppercase and lowercase letters, numbers, and most punctuation.
