Re: no cyrillic fonts in windows 2000
Igor, I have another question for you. Maybe this should be addressed to
another list, but I figured you might know the answer.. hope this is not too
off-topic. I have an TCL script that I run using Expect from Cygwin. It
used to work fine, but one day something happened that messed it up, and I
can't figure out what it is. Here's an 3-line version of the script,
demonstrating the problem, that you will understand even if you don't know
TCL or Expect:
set author [lindex $argv 0]
All this does is print to the standard output the first parameter to the
script from the command line. When I run the script (testCyr.tcl) with a
expect testCyr.tcl ????????
I am expecting this output:
but instead get:
and no error messages. But some cyrillic strings, such as "???????" work
fine, as well as any latin string. Any ideas? I am positive that it worked
