I wonder if someone could help me out... I was using jEdit to store commands to be used in R as a log of the project in a text editor. I saved the jEdit file as normal, but when I tried to open it I get a warning telling me that jEdit cannot read the encoding, that information might be lost. The result is a scrambled mess.

How do I recover the information in the file? I know that you can reload with different encoding but I have no idea which one to try.

I don't know why the program won't read a file saved by itself... 

Any suggestions please???
