Subject Re: Need to get help: Building Groovy 1.7.5 from source gives encoding error for ReadLineTest.groovy
Date Wed, 07 Feb 2018 06:12:38 GMT
Dear Jochen,

Then why do I have to set

encoding="utf-8"

in groovyc commands in the build.xml to force it to UTF-8,

while the official source distribution can omit this and the Groovy 
developers can still compile the source of Groovy 1.7.5 correctly?


Which settings in the system am I missing?

Regards,
