I posted on the users list but got no reply, so I try again on the dev list.

Is there a way to specify the encoding used by the subversion command
line tools to print information?

I am on a windows box, trying to implement a post-commit hook. I am
using svnlook to get the current commit's log message, but it is
always in the text encoding of the windows XP command prompt (cp850 in
this case). But I need the message in either UTF-8 or ANSI encoding

So how can I change the text encoding?

Thank you,
