-scs (Set charset for list files) switch

Sets charset for list files.

Syntax


-scs{UTF-8 | UTF-16LE | UTF-16BE | WIN | DOS | {id} }

Default charset is UTF-8.

Value Description
UTF-8 Unicode UTF-8 character set.
UTF-16LE Unicode UTF-16 little-endian character set.
UTF-16BE Unicode UTF-16 big-endian character set.
