After experimenting a while with Python 2.4 and Python 2.3 and
debugging through Subversion, it appears to me that changing the
Regional Options -> Standards and Formats doesn't affect my console
codepage at all. It's always CP437.

However, it does affect my locale -- with those options set to
English/US I get 'English_United States.1252' back from setlocale and
with them set to Germany/Germany I get 'German_Germany.1252'.

With VC6 binaries and a German locale I get the umlaut. With VC2005
binaries and a German locale I get a question mark.

So, VC6 fputs pays attention to locale and VC2005 fputs doesn't? Does
it sound correct that the different locales affect the output
language?

If the above is true then it seems like there must be an option or
preprocessor definition or something that must be set or the default
has changed in VC2005...or something...anyone have any ideas?
