Target version:3.2.7


The CSV import already handles a couple of Exceptions that may happen when the user-selected encoding does not match the real encoding of the CSV (or it contains otherwise illegal byte sequences). We recently encountered Encoding::UndefinedConversionError, which is not yet caught by that error handling. The attached patches add a test case and a fix for that.

  • Target version set to 3.2.7

We can reproduce the problem with the test in 0001-adds-failing-test-case-for-import-with-wrong-encodin.patch. Setting target version to 3.2.7.

By the way, the encoding of the file invalid-Shift_JIS.csv is valid CP932. Shift_JIS and CP932 are almost identical, but CP932 includes more characters.

$ iconv -f cp932 -t utf8 test/fixtures/files/invalid-Shift_JIS.csv
