Description abs 2007-07-04 03:12:14 UTC
I write following code to IRB console.
irb(main):001:0> puts "Japanese Character"
=> nil

Then IRB console displays "????". IRB console should handle non-ascii character correctly.

My environment is following.
 OS: WindowsXP(Japanese)
 NetBeans:6.0 M10
 Java: JDK1.6.0_01

The same thing on FreeBSD Unix Box when using .irbrc with wirble gem which is configured to display color output. NB
console displays control characters in such configuration.
Comment 2 Ken Frank 2007-09-19 16:38:15 UTC
this was seen earlier and I had thought that it was due to lack of i18n support in ruby itself, at least version being
used in nb6.
Comment 3 Ken Frank 2007-10-03 19:01:52 UTC
please fix for nb6; this really is a p2 kind of issue since use of multibyte and nonascii
should be provided for users unless its a limiation of the underlying language.
please change back to p3 if it is a limitation of ruby/rails itself.
Comment 4 Torbjorn Norbye 2007-10-05 17:41:06 UTC
This is a bug in JRuby itself; the NetBeans IRB console simply creates an instance of JRuby's "TextAreaReadline" class,
which itself is manipulating a JTextComponent directly. It's unlikely we can fix this for 6.0.

Piter - regarding the color output escape codes, that's a separate issue (and will be fixed for 6.0) - I believe theres
a separate issue for it that Martin took over. Martin, do you have the id?

> Martin, do you have the id?


Should get fixed in 6.0 time frame.
Comment 6 Ken Frank 2008-01-10 18:52:30 UTC
since its problem with jruby itself, can we leave it open until we know
if its fixed in some later jruby that we will use for next netbeans ?
Comment 7 Petr Jiricka 2008-02-05 23:34:16 UTC
So is there a bug report filed against JRuby?
Comment 8 yokolet 2008-02-17 04:31:42 UTC
Since newly released JRuby 1.1RC2 still has this bug, I filed it. The fix seems to be carried over till the future JRuby
Comment 9 Martin Krauskopf 2008-02-18 09:20:58 UTC
Thanks Yoko. Leaving this open as Ken suggested.
