This plugin doesn't support Unicode *.tab/*.tsv files (tried xBaseView v. 5.6a and v.10 with UTF-8, UTF-16 TAB files with and without BOM).
It seems it's the only plugin officially supporting TAB files, so to solve the issue I made internal association for TAB files with a batch script that converts TAB to CSV using NirSoft CSVFileView and opens CSV in Lister in a separate TC process where installed Excellence plugin shows it:

Code: Select all

@ECHO OFF
SETLOCAL
SET infile=%~1
SET infname=%~n1
SET infpath=%~d1%~p1
SET infext=%~x1
SET tmppath=%tmp%\_tcf_
SET tmpfile=%tmppath%\%infname%%infext%
SET fconverted=%tmppath%\%infname%.csv
DEL /Q "%fconverted%"
COPY /Y "%infile%" "%tmpfile%"
CSVFileView.exe /load "%tmpfile%" /scomma "%fconverted%"
DEL /Q "%tmpfile%"
%COMMANDER_EXE% /S=L:T4 "%fconverted%"
DEL /Q "%fconverted%"
ENDLOCAL
exit
Excellence shows correctly UTF-8 files without BOM, so since the script doesn't do any additional conversions, the TAB file must also be in UTF-8 without BOM.
