Ticket #397 (closed feature request: fixed)
Reading source files in encodings other than Latin-1
Description (last modified by simonmar) (diff)
For GHC 6.4 on SuSE Linux 9.2 (installed from the GHC RPM). When including SOME non-ascii characters in character or string literals, in the source code, I get a "lexical error in string/character literal" error message. Examples are some french accents and german umlauts - é,Ü,Ä. However, with other characters from the same set (like üä) there is no problem, they are processed correctly I checked with Hugs and there were no problems, so it seems to be a GHC bug. For further questions send email to: Rainer Volz, mail at vrtprj.com
