The sql_set_charset() function requests the usage of the specified encoding for transactions between PHP and the database manager. sql_set_charset() accepts three parameters. Only the first is required: -# $charset is the requested charset, such as "utf8" -# $serveur, -# $options. This function is called immediately after each connection to the database server in order to specify the charset to be employed. This encoding selection is defined elsewhere in the charset_sql_connexion meta variable created during the installation of SPIP.
