- Subject: german characters
- Reply-to: "Markus R." <vl950t at freenet dot de>
I have read many articles in the newsgroup and studied the FAQ on the
cygwin homepage to enable german characters in the bash. But I didn't
find a solution.
I have a fresh cygwin install on my system. I have created a '.inputrc'
in my home directory with the following entries:
set meta-flag on
set convert-meta off
set output-meta on
the file permissions are read, write and execute for everybody (only
for test purpose). Now when I open my bash I get '\366' for an 'ö'
and '\344' for an 'ä' and so on. When I type 'cat' then I can enter
german character 'ö' 'ä' and so on.
When I delete the .inputrc file then I can't see nothing when I type
a german character like 'ö','ä' and so on. This seems for me that the
.inputrc file is read by a bash execute.
Any ideas?? It's really confusing
