Language issue in console

Hi,

We’re trying to search our database in Thai, but it seems the ruby
console doesn’t recognise the characters.

Can someone shead some light on this please?

Some text input would be “กรุงเทพฯ”

And the console will show

Processing ProductsController#getprovinces (for 192.168.150.1 at
2010-01-28 00:54:40) [GET]
Parameters: {“code”=>“à ¸à ¸£à ¸¸à ¸à ¹à ¸à ¸à ¸¯”}
Province Load (0.6ms) SELECT * FROM provinces WHERE (name like
‘%à ¸à ¸£à ¸¸à ¸à ¹à ¸à ¸à ¸¯%’) ORDER BY name ASC LIMIT 10
Completed in 10ms (View: 3, DB: 1) | 200 OK [http://gearbox/products/
getprovinces/?code=
%E0%B8%81%E0%B8%A3%E0%B8%B8%E0%B8%87%E0%B9%80%E0%B8%97%E0%B8%9E
%E0%B8%AF]

It doesnt seem to recognise the thai characters.

I’ve installed a Thai language pack on our server (ubuntu) but i’m
unsure where to turn from here.

Is it the charset in the html? do we need to pass some data to ruby to
tell it that there’s thai coming?

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
Todd

Is your DB setup to use UTF-8 , I’m searching in Thai and Lao without an
issue
When you say the ruby console , what do you mean ? irb - script/console
?

I don’t get exactly what issue you’re describing, but this may apply:
