IRB, Windows and International Keyboards

Hello!

I have a hungarian keyboard on a windows machine.

When I go into IRB, I can only type characters as if I had an English
standard keyboard hooked in.

Hence I can’t type any special characters properly.

Is there any way to get IRB to work with an foreign (in this case
hungarian)
Keyboard?

Thanks,

Have a look at this:

The simplest workaround I’ve found:
irb --noreadline
