[erlang-questions] First Erlang experiences- not so good
Thu Sep 25 20:57:08 CEST 2008
The Erlang source code files are assumed to be Latin-1 (ISO-8859-1). This
is well documented. The problem, as explained by Toby, is that the
*editor*you are using is writing the file in UTF-16(probably) . So
you either need
to use another editor or configure the one you have to write Latin-1.
This is also *not* a problem with the Windows version of Erlang; you would
get the same result if you compiled your UTF-16 source on linux, etc.
It is very unusual to store source code for any programming language in
UTF-16. What editor are you using?
