in thread LANG setting and code pages

Thanks for the replies, Red Hat : Red Hat Enterprise Linux ES release 3 (Taroon Update 1) LANG=en_US.UTF-8 Putty Terminal encoding UTF-8 I have cut Oracle out completely, I have the simplest possible to test the problem, i.e. print "Umlaut \n"; If I leave LANG set, I can edit my script and type in vi, but the output is messed up when I run it, if I unset LANG, the script output looks good, but I can't use vi to edit the umlauts. What setting(s) do I need to be able to print a from perl *and* be able to edit the script and change it? Cheers, Tony

    Like I said earlier, remove the .utf8 suffix from $LANG, ie in you case, set it to en_US.


      Hi Dave, I tried setting LANG=en_US as you suggest. The gets printed but I cant see them in vi: print "Umlaut : ??\\n"; # copy-n-pasted from a vi session. That should be I tried "use uft8" and "no utf8" but still a problem. Any other ideas? Tony
