Subject Need a non-english jikes user
Date Sat, 10 Mar 2001 15:10:46 GMT
Hello all,

I got some troubles using jikes on my linux box.
Every time i try to compile a java files containing accentuated characters
(é,è,à,etc...) jikes gives the following error :
jikes *.java
*** Error: The value of this "String" literal is invalid. Perhaps it contains 
a bad escape sequence?

I also tried to use the encoding option of jikes :
jikes -encoding iso-8859-1 *.java
and it gives the following error :
Charset conversion error at offset 0: Argument list too long 
(it gives a similar error on every encodings i tried : us-ascii, fr, ...)

Can someone help ?
I would really appreciate to stop re-using javac :(

Thanks in advance,
