I’ve queried for a solutions, but didn’t found something concrete,
although this defect seems to be know for half a year.
Is this an issue with ruby, with “gem” or with the rubyinstaller?
The error is not an bug, there is no way to convert IBM737 encoding to
UTF16 or UTF8, period.
I cannot verify this, but even if your right:
Then it is most possibly an implementation defect, see below.
You need to update your console to use a modern set of encoding/
codepage, also, do yourself a favor and use a TrueType font for it,
which will solve any possible rendering issue you might experience in
See how to permanently set your console. IBM737 and 850 are DOS-age
I have a simple laptop, with Windows 7 on it, greek version.
DOS-age encodings or not:
I had never with any toolkit any problems, and ruby 1.8 worked fine,
And of course I have as simple expectation: that a native windows
installer will install a ruby 1.9 that works.
I don’t like to touch the very basic OS setup, but I’ve tried:
Your “Troubleshooting” document suggests: chcp 1252 / chcp 65001.
But with those I can’t write greek chars.
