This is my problem not a database problem. I want to use MY data as I need. I dont need a tool that it help me that way. If the NONE encoding become UTF or anything else It is a problem for me. I want to be free.

If you database encoding is NONE, then one connection could write to it as

UTF-8, another as WIN1250 etcetc and now you have logically corrupted

character data when another connection reads the data written by another


It is better to enforce this integrity of your data on the database side,

then to depend on all programs connecting to behave.
