#1152 new defect

Padre is not displaying DOS-ASCII ANSI encoded text files with Hebrew correctly

I have to work on developing a system to parse, and also build the files, which are Fixed-Width format files, which include English and Hebrew characters.

Comparison is again Notepad++, where I load the file, go to Encoding->Encode in ANSI and I can read it just fine.

1) Load the file in Padre, and the Hebrew characters are unreadable.
2) Attempt Edit -> Convert Encoding -> Encode Document to.. -> Select ASCII.
3) I get a msg: Document encoded to (utf8).

I also noticed the file is saved and overwritten (lucky I had a backup..)! without me needing to save.

After that conversion process, the new file's Hebrew is unreadable even in Notepad++ in any encoding..

A sample file is attached.

I hope this is fixable... Hebrew goes from Right to left so I am unsure whether Perl can work with it in ASCII/ANSI all.

My version information:

This is perl, v5.10.1 (*) built for MSWin32-x86-multi-thread

Wx Version=(0.9702) wxWidgets 2.8.10 unicode=(1)

Running on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit in English and Padre is 0.82, upgraded from version I downloaded here 1-2 days ago.
