[EP-tech] Re: DSpace import plugin doesn't seem to parse UTF-8 correctly

Hi George,

Try this patch:

--- a/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Import/DSpace.pm
+++ b/perl_lib/EPrints/Plugin/Import/DSpace.pm
@@ -235,7 +235,7 @@ sub retrieve_dcq

        return undef unless defined $dc;
        $self->{errurl} = $self->{errmsg} = undef;

If it works, please pay it forward by submitting a bug report at http://github.com/eprints/eprints and adding the patch to the ticket as a proposed fix.

Subject: [EP-tech] DSpace import plugin doesn't seem to parse UTF-8 correctly

Hello everybody,

I am trying to use the DSpace Import plugin from EPrints by giving a URL
to the web interface. While the system import the record, the character
sets seem to not be imported correctly. My import is performed from a
Greek DSpace server, and a test record where should be imported is this:

If you give the above URL into the DSpace import form, you'll see that
the record is imported but the character set is messed up.

Thanks all for your help in advance,
