Encoding & Culture

Encoding & Culture

When opening a log file, LogViewPlus will attempt to identify the file's encoding by detecting a byte order mark (BOM).  However, some files do not have a BOM.  In this case a default encoding will be used.  LogViewPlus uses the Windows system encoding by default, but you can select a different default encoding.


Default Encoding

1. Default Encoding

The default file encoding LogViewPlus should use when opening a log file. Using the Windows default encoding is recommended.


Additional Cultures

2. Additional Cultures

By default, LogViewPlus will support your current Windows culture as well as English. These cultures can be used when parsing log files.  For example, date timestamps are often written in a manner which is culture specific. 

The additional cultures list can be used to expand the list of cultures used when parsing log files.
