[erlang-questions] filelib:fold_files (file:list_dir) and unicode filesystems
Tue Feb 26 08:51:24 CET 2008
I have a process that monitors specific folders for changed files. The
problem is that when a filename contains Unicode characters which are
outside of the system default codepage (Latin-1), those files are just
invisible to erlang.
There's a workaround for linux - using UTF-8 translation seems to work,
but apparently it doesn't work on windows.
I think that once the "string as a list" problem is settled down, then
the efile driver should be updated to support Unicode filenames, maybe
using UTF-16 string encoding, rather than UTF-8.
Are there any plans to do this?
