Convert A UTF-8 String To ISO-8859-1

Convert a utf string to iso, used this when generating a pdf with pdf-writer in Rails, all my text is UTF8 but pdf-writer does not support this.


#add this to environment.rb
#call to_iso on any UTF8 string to get a ISO string back
#example : "Cédez le passage aux français".to_iso

class String
  require 'iconv' #this line is not needed in rails !
  def to_iso
    Iconv.conv('ISO-8859-1', 'utf-8', self)
  end
end
