Ok, lets say you have such a situation.<br />
You have a lot of text files, and you know that thay ware save in iso-8859-5 and you want to use them
on your web page, but you aleready have a runing service and it was built in koi8-r.
Of course changing encoding of already built pages doesn't make sence, and changeing all text files
would take too much time. Well this is a job for the ConvertCharset.class.

<form action="demo1.php" method="POST" target="_self">
Select encoding your files are save in:
<select name="FromCharset" size="1">
	<option value="iso-8859-5" <?php echo "$Fromiso_8859_5"; ?>>iso-8859-5</option>
	<option value="windows-1251" <?php echo "$Fromwindows_1251"; ?>>windows-1251</option>
	<option value="cp866" <?php echo "$Fromcp866"; ?>>cp866</option>
	<option value="cp855" <?php echo "$Fromcp855"; ?>>cp855</option>
	<option value="koi8-r" <?php echo "$Fromkoi8_r"; ?>>koi8-r</option>
	<option value="x-mac-cyrillic" <?php echo "$Fromx_mac_cyrillic"; ?>>x-mac-cyrillic</option>
	<option value="utf-8" <?php echo "$Fromutf_8"; ?>>utf-8</option>
</select><br />
And select encoding you want to get:
<select name="ToCharset" size="1">
	<option value="iso-8859-5" <?php echo "$Toiso_8859_5"; ?>>iso-8859-5</option>
	<option value="windows-1251" <?php echo "$Towindows_1251"; ?>>windows-1251</option>
	<option value="cp866" <?php echo "$Tocp866"; ?>>cp866</option>
	<option value="cp855" <?php echo "$Tocp855"; ?>>cp855</option>
	<option value="koi8-r" <?php echo "$Tokoi8_r"; ?>>koi8-r</option>
	<option value="x-mac-cyrillic" <?php echo "$Tox_mac_cyrillic"; ?>>x-mac-cyrillic</option>
	<option value="utf-8" <?php echo "$Toutf_8"; ?>>utf-8</option>
</select><br />
<input type="checkbox" name="Entities" <?php if ($Entities == 1) echo "CHECKED"; ?>> Check the box if you want numeric entities insted of regular chars.
<input type="submit" name="encode" value=" Encode string from file " />
</form>

<?php
$FileName = "cyrillic" . "." . $FromCharset;
$File = file($FileName);
$FileText = implode("",$File);

$NewEncoding = new ConvertCharset;
$NewFileOutput = $NewEncoding->Convert($FileText, $FromCharset, $ToCharset, $Entities);

echo "This is your filename \"" . $FileName . "\" encoded to ". $ToCharset. ": <BR>
<table border=\"0\"><tr><td>" . $NewFileOutput . "</td></tr></table><br />";
?>

I hope you do understand what is this class for? :) If you don't well..., that means<br />
I should never write any class again :)<br />
