Sound's a good Idea, because I think, Tobias, you and me, we are not the only people using these funny characters worldwide. I recently had a discussion with Toby Johnson from vss2svn-migration tool where these problems also came up.

I downloaded the win32 - edition of SVN from tigris.org. How can I check if this build is linked against libiconv?

Does anybody knows what has to be set under Win32? Simply hacking set de_DE.ISO8859-1 didn't do the trick, however I didn't expect it to work.

| When trying to svn add the file[ with german umlaute , the following error shows up.
| c:\_tst>svn add trunk/täst.txt
| svn: Safe data:
| "trunk/t"
| ... was followed by non-ascii byte 228.
| Non-ascii character detected (see above), and unable to convert to/from
| UTF-8
| svn list, svn log --verbose and svn status --verbose give the same error.

| Committing the file with Tortoise works but I need the command line, too.
| Any idea, what to do about this?
