While updating my webpage-pieces-merger to be groovy, I noticed some odd problem on Italian accents (same would be for German umlaute and so on).
So what is going on with UTF-8?? Why is the encoding wrong, when my java encoding is always right?
When I have a look at the System.properties, I notice that the encoding is:
Alright, so I just have to change that one?
try 1) groovy -c UTF-8 myScript -> NOT WORKING
try 2) first set the encoding in the java options on the console:
after that I get a nice file.encoding=UTF-8
and the text is ok:
so what about setting the property inside the script?
try 3) inside the myScript set System.setProperty("file.encoding","UTF-8")
Nice, I get file.encoding=UTF-8 but for some reason the accents are messed up again.
I really wonder why try 3 is not working, probably setting this inside the process is too late? Wrong JVM? Hmmm... really no idea about it. Try 2 is working ok, but I don't like the fact that I have to set a system variable before. I hope to find a solution soon.
