It works fine, thanks. But instead of this program, wouldn't it be possible to write a program where your include the accents directly in the source coude, just like with other languages?


#!/usr/bin/env ruby

require 'fox16'
require 'jcode'


include Fox

# Prepare a string
label = "Les enfants vont à l'école.\nLa boulangère vend-elle le pain en août?"

FXApp.new("Unicode Example", "FoxTest") do |app|
  main = FXMainWindow.new(app, "Unicode Text", nil, nil, DECOR_ALL)
  FXLabel.new(main, label)
