Re: Bug in svn 0.26.0, 0.28.0 under Win32: It trash console codepage and/or font :(

Hello Lev,

I use a fr_CA version of Windows, and the same thing happens. Using DIR
after running Subversion commands causes all kinds of funny characters to
appear. For instance, DIR does not use regular commas or spaces. I
don't know what they are, but they only work on CP 850 instead of 1252.

After I run SVN commands, I will usually use CHCP 850 to reset the code
page to the right one.

At one point I had batch files which reset the CP back to 850 at the end,
but I dropped them. Might use them back later on.

My wrapper batch files looked like this:

@svn.exe %*
@chcp 850 >/nul

I remember there is on Win2K/XP a % variable that means "all arguments",
but am not sure if it was %*. Maybe someone will correct me ?

Hope that helps !
