Subject RE: <exec> and '$' symbol on Solaris 8
Date Mon, 21 Nov 2005 13:45:13 GMT

Word 'output' was used in more common sense. Not output stream but files
created during utility's work. ProductIndexer itself creates several files,
not puts their contents to the output stream. So I believe <redirector>
hardly can help.

As to encoding it seems like every other symbols in the files are normal.
Though I'm not sure about other special symbols.

Thank you in any case,

Could be an encoding problem. Try using a nested <redirector> element to 
set the output/error encodings to match that of the platform.
