The shell has no trouble displaying uft8 chars

ive made some string in spanish compiled propely if you save the source code as latin1 but no luck if you use utf8 editors

Also you cat do io:get_line data and get that data displayed properly but when you have compiled strings in the code it in utf8 mode it doesnt work...

If you manage to get some feedbak form the list, drop me a line :-(

Regards, Angel
