void Connection::convertToCP437 ( string &  text  )  [protected]

convert a String from ISO8859-1 to CP437 (IBM PC-DOS charset)

Unfortunately, some CAPI drivers expect the fax headline to be given in the IBM PC-DOS charset. This method can convert the string from the normal ISO8859-1 representation to this charset.

text the string to convert
CapiExternalError thrown when the iconv* functions report an error (other than conversion not supported)
