    Send special character over HTTP

    Hi All,

    I am sending data over http by using RHTTPTransaction class.
    I able to send a string data to the server.

    But when i send data containing special characters, it gives different result.
    like if i send data '¼aN±', i received '%BCaN%7F' on server. That is the hex value(e.g. '%BC' & '%7F') of ascii of the special characters(e.g. '¼' & '±') and other character are same.

    Can anybody tell me how to send special character over the network.
    Any suggestion is welcome.

    Thanx in advance.

    Re: Send special character over HTTP

    This is the normal way, called URL encoding: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Url_encoding (of course if you do not trust Wikipedia, you can check the related RFC too). Your server has to be configured to decode it.
