welcome to the club of users whose native tongues use "funny" characters 8-}

The issue you've got has in fact been dealt with in this mailing list, but since I'm not
a Windows expert, let me just point you to messages with "Problems converting to/from utf-8" in their subject lines, particularly those by Christian Barkey.

Perhaps even the following will help you out:


My downloaded version IS linked against libiconv, since it is simply installed as a subdirectory of subversion. BUT there has to be set an environment variable APR_ICONV_PATH to point to this directory to get everything in touch. This
under Windows NT.
On my Windows XP PC I have also installed TortoiseSVN which, same as for you, works like a charm. But the commandline tools all failed for international characters. The environment variable APOR_ICONV_PATH is also set on this PC, but
points to the installation of TortoiseSVN. I assumed, this is the reason, why Tortoise works well and svn not.
I modified the variable to point to my installed subversion directory/iconv and, *wow*, now I'm able to work on files with these funny characters in it with the commandline tools.


As described above: The trick is to set APR_ICONV_PATH to the correct path. TortoiseSVN-iconv and Subversion-iconv - installation
seem to be incompatible, at least on my station.


A bientôt

| Betreff: svn list -v french date format issue
| The following issue has been encountered on Windows XP (french) cmd prompt,
| using 1.1.0-rc2 win32 binaries.
| August is written "août" in french and the svn command line client cannot
| support non ascii characters as û.
| svn list -v svn://localhost/depot/fr/sample.txt
| 20 me 8213 juin 14 11:39 sample.txt
| and after committing some change on august, 30 :
| svn list -v svn://localhost/depot/fr/sample.txt
| svn:safe data:
| "ao"
| ... was followed bu non-ASCII byte 251.
| I have not seen any email referencing the issue even if it is rather high
| priority (for french users at least).
| Regards,
| Guillaume
