px_set_targetencoding -- Sets the encoding for character fields (deprecated)


bool px_set_targetencoding (resource pxdoc, string encoding)

Set the encoding for data retrieved from a character field. All character fields will be recoded to the encoding set by this function. If the encoding is not set, the character data will be returned in the DOS code page encoding as specified in the database. Returns FALSE if the encoding could not be set, e.g. the encoding is unknown, or pxlib does not support recoding at all. In the second case a warning will be issued.

See also px_get_info() to determine the DOS code page.
