Environment variable @inputPath and accented letters?

Post by DFH » Sun Apr 29, 2018 2:51 am

I found a strange problem with the Output filter when using the following as the Output path:

Code: Select all

@inputPath..\USFM
If part of the input path happens to include any non-ASCII letters (e.g. with an accent, as in the Spanish name Rubén ),
the output path is not properly implemented because these non-ASCII letters get garbled.

TextPipe created such a garbled path for the output files, and even also created an empty folder therein with the same name as the input folder.

This may be a Windows issue, but there's no warning about it in the relevant help page for TextPipe.
