Query with special characters crashes under Windows XP


#1

Hi,

Index queries with special characters (e.g. German Umlauts but also
other European ones) make the Ruby process run for quite a long time and
crash finally.

I’m using Rails on Windows XP with Ferret 0.11.4_mswin_32.

I could isolate the problem in the following simple controller action
(so there’s no web browser form field involved):

def test
index = Ferret::I.new
index << “Portimão”
p index.search “Portimão”
end

The statement index.search “Portimão” causes the crash. There is no
entry in ferret_index.log or any other feedback.

My renvironment contains the following:

ENV[‘LANG’] = ‘de_DE.UTF-8@euro’
ENV[‘LC_TIME’] = ‘C’
require ‘acts_as_ferret’

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks for your help,

Starburger

Is there a hope that this problem will be gone under Suse Linux? This
will be the production env.

Definitely. I don’t have one at hand but here (Ubuntu) your snippet
caused no problem.

Hi!

Afair this issue has come up a few times now, always on Windows
machines…

Is there some windows equivalent to unix locale settings that might be
set wrong (i.e. to something not UTF8)?

Yeah! No problem with Suse 10.
