Kaybord problem with "@" and "[" and "]" in console

I am using RoR on Win XP:
ruby v. 1.8.4
gem v. 0.8.11
rails (1.0.0.3855, 1.0.0)

when running “script\breakpointer” or “script\console” from a normal dos
prompt window everything is working well, except i am unable to type the
characters “@”,"[","]", and some others: they simply don’t appear when
pressed. Not even copy/pasting those characters is possible. It looks
like a terminal emulation is “swallowing” thpse characters.

Can anyone help please?

Best regards,
Marcus O.

Are you using the Alt-key to type these characters? I had the same
problem on WinXP and I temporarily switched to English keyboard layout.

Of course I would like to hear about a better solution for non-English
keyboard layouts.

Yes, i must use ALTGr to type those chars (QWERTY keyboard here…)
And, yes, switching to US keyboard soldes the problem, although i must
blind-type some characters.

Thanks for the tip,
Marcus.

Great!
thank you Eduardo.
