It seems that I'm not able to copy / paste accentued characters
from Command Prompt to Cygwin and between Cygwin.
I write the following on the bash prompt:
I copy it to the Command Prompt:
Now I copy it to the same bash prompt:
The same if I copy it to another bash prompt.
It happens with all other applications, not only bash. I tested
with Lynx, Midnight Commander's internal editor, and others.
What could be wrong ? Accents work everywhere. Using XP
Professional SP1 with all updates. Brazilian ABNT2 keyboard.
BTW, to make some accentued characters (like É and all with ~)
work under Cygwin I had to set
Regional and Language Options -> Regional Options -> Advanced
to Portuguese (Brazil). All worked on Command Prompt with
English (United States).
Am I missing some Code page conversion tables under the same
window ? Which ?
