        Hi All,


        I Have posted this problem in the DEV Mailinglist one week ago,
but no response.


        I have a problem with svnlook. I don't get any Unicode or utf8
output from this Tool.


        I have written a pre-commit hook under windows that changes the
log message.


        pre-commit.bat calls svnlook log ....... >temp.txt



        I have set this in my batch file.




        set APR_ICONV_PATH=C:\Programme\CollabNet Subversion


        set LANG=de_DE.UTF8


        mode con codepage select=65001




        I have tested a lot of different codepages here, but I found no
way to tell svnlook to use utf-8 or unicode.






        The windows codepage for utf8 is 65001. I have tested a dirty
trick, I have copied the file utf-8.so to cp65001.so and set the windows
codepage to 65001 (mode con codepage select=65001).


        This works fine, svnlook puts out Unicode now, but I am not sure
if it really works correct in all cases. And it is a really dirty trick



        Is there a clean way to get UTF-8 output from svnlook?




        Is this a svnlook bug or a apr-iconv bug? I have taken a look to
the apr-iconv sources and there is a "charset_alias_list" with some
mappings, but none for 65001.



        I have read some questions about adding a --utf8-output switch
to some svn tools, I think this would be a good solution.





        Thanks, Carsten
