914Editing files with native characters in their names?
- May 5, 2003Hello, vim-developers!
It seems, currently it is impossible to edit files with native
characters in their names, when GVIM enoding is set to UTF-8. (WinXP,
GVIM 6.1 1-449)
There is an example: it is possible to open such a file with GVIM
internal File Explorer or by using 'File - Open' menu item, but the
name of the file will be damaged, so it will be impossible to write it
back. The name of the file looks like this after opening in GVIM:
And it is completely impossible to open a file with native characters
in the name using ':e' command or from command line - GVIM just does
not found a file and opens an empty file with damaged name.
More details: the default Russian character encoding under Windows is
CP1251. So, the filenames with Russian characters are stored in this
encoding. There are my GVIM language settings:
If there is something we can do about this? Thank you.
