Fixes to string/byte handling for Python 3 compatibility.
I don't know if encoding information is embedded in the IGOR files or not. Currently the stock parser just leaves everything it reads in in bytes. For compatibility, the igorpy module attempts to convert those byte strings to Unicode, but it just assumes that the encoding used in the file matches the locale or default encoding used by your system. This could be a portability issue. Until commit commit fe7006e3 Author: W. Trevor King <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Sat Jul 21 07:50:09 2012 -0400 Replace igor.igorpy parsing with translations from igor.packed.load. The igorpy parser used sys.getfilesystemencoding() to guess the encoding, but that encoding is actually used to encode file names, not file contents. locale.getpreferredencoding is a better guess, but it's still just a guess.
