Set codepage used when passing strings to OS single-byte file system APIs


Source position: systemh.inc line 1235

procedure SetMultiByteFileSystemCodePage(

  CodePage: TSystemCodePage



SetMultiByteFileSystemCodePage sets the codepage used in single-byte OS file system APIs to CodePage. The effect of this change is that the default codepage used to translate multi-byte (UTF-16) strings to single-byte codepage-aware strings used in File system APIs changes, and strings passed to the codepage-aware file system APIs will be passed using the new codepage.

This constant is not used if the file system API of the OS is multi-byte (such as on Windows).

Do not set DefaultFileSystemCodePage directly, as additional actions may need to be done when changing the code page.
