Rspec output and unicode

Hey there,

Rspec output (1.1.3) doesn’t seem to be handling unicode characters
correctly. I’m expecting to see Japanese katakana (on winXP) and I’m
getting numbers instead - the byte representation of the katakana or

Should it be producing unicode if I have my environment set right?




My environment, OS X Tiger, handles utf-8 katakana corrrectly w/ RSpec
Try following step If your’re using DOS prompt:

  1. Change Font to ‘MS Gothic’ on DOS prompt.
  2. run command: “chcp 65001”
  3. that’s it.

edition) and sadly it didn’t work. I guess it’s not too important -
just a
nice to have…
