Onderwerp: Re: [Ironruby-core] Encoding problem
I don't really know the solution to your question, but this might help:
ë is Unicode U+00EB, which is 0xC3AB in UTF-8 (so we are dealing with unicode rather than utf-8, which I assume is because IronRuby uses the immutable .NET strings internally with Unicode encoding).
The errors are expected if your default encoding is US-ASCII because it does not contain ë (and uses single bytes, so the 0x00EB would be broken into two bytes and your script would choke on the second 0xEB) : you will need to set your encoding to something compatible, like utf-8.
I don't quite know how to do that properly in IronRuby, but in CRuby 1.9 you could use "magic comments" in your ruby file and in 1.8 something like $KCODE='u' could work. You might also be able to drop back into .NET and set the encoding there, but I'm not sure how that affects IronRuby assemblies.
I would start with $KCODE = 'u' Let me know how that works for you.

My boss thought it would be cool to use “ë” in an sql tablename, many of you will want to shoot her now J.
But now I did find something weird, I can’t even print “ë”.
tabaco.rb:16:in `puts': character U+00EB can't be encoded in US-ASCII (Encoding::InvalidByteSequenceError)
when I print the string somewhere else :S when it comes back from a method.
System::Text::DecoderFallbackException at /patient/0
Unable to translate bytes [EB] at index 3 from specified code page to Unicode.
Or when I don’t mess with it
Encoding::InvalidByteSequenceError at /patient/0
invalid byte sequence EB on UTF-8
All the same problem coming from 3 places.
Is this a fundamental issue or should this be solvable?
If you could point me in the right direction I could try to maybe fix it.
