Here's another question. Why, if I set the code page to 437, does
GetACP() return 1252?
C:\Documents and Settings\djberge>chcp 437
Active code page: 437
C:\Documents and Settings\djberge>irb
irb(main):001:0> require 'windows/national'
irb(main):002:0> include Windows::National
I realise 1252 is "Latin 1" while 437 is "United States", but I'm
curious why they're different here. Am I confusing two different things?
