Re: AW: Problems converting to/from utf-8

Thank you for your answer, Manfred.

I decided to switch to the Solaris box because I don´t know, how to set
Windows to "de_DE.ISO8859-1".

So I did:
$ ldd /usr/local/bin/svn | grep libiconv
        libiconv.so.2 => /usr/local/lib/libiconv.so.2
Looks good, I hope.

So I set LC_CTYPE to "de_DE.ISO8859-1". LANG and LC_ALL were unset, the rest
set on "C". The result was the same error as with Windows when trying a
checkout.

After an
export LC_CTYPE="de_DE.UTF-8"
I was able to checkout the repository with a funny looking file in trunk.
$ svn checkout svn://server/tst .
A trunk
A trunk/täst.txt
A trunk/foo.txt
A trunk/test.txt
A trunk/long.txt
A branch
A tags
Checked out revision 2.

Adding a second umlaute file and trying to add.
$ touch töüst.txt
$ l
total 0
-rw-r----- 1 qqsvn svn 0 Aug 13 17:16 foo.txt
-rw-r----- 1 qqsvn svn 0 Aug 13 17:16 long.txt
-rw-r----- 1 qqsvn svn 0 Aug 13 17:16 test.txt
-rw-r----- 1 qqsvn svn 0 Aug 13 17:16 täst.txt
-rw-r----- 1 qqsvn svn 0 Aug 13 17:18 töüst.txt

$ svn add töüst.txt
svn: Valid UTF-8 data
(hex: 74)
followed by invalid UTF-8 sequence
(hex: f6 fc 73 74)

I think I´m stuck in the locale jungle. Can anybody help me out or give
advice to other sources?

Many thanks,
Tobias
