I frequently need to search computer storage media for words in
languages such as chinese, japanese, korean, russian etc. Currently I
have been using tools that primarily display the computer values as
ASCII or hex. The search tool has no display capability for unicode
values (or glyphs).
When I re-order the UTF-16 value to hex (ie flip the bits) I get a large
number of false positive hits on the hex values. Further, when I look
at the surrounding hex values to ascertain the context of the keyword
'hit' I am finding that it is extremely difficult to deduce a meaningful
Can anyone assist me with an approach and or tools that can assist with
reading and searching computer media that contains CJK etc characters?
Thanks in advance
