variable with UTF8 content: Invalid byte sequence in conversion input
Submitted by Adam Lackorzynski
Assigned to Dan Nicholson
using variable contents with UTF8, yields the following:
pkg-config> ./pkg-config --define-variable=x=ö pkg-config Invalid byte sequence in conversion input pkg-config> echo $? 1 pkg-config> git rev-parse HEAD 0e847a22 (current master)
Glib is version 2.42.0-2 (Debian sid).
In our particular use-case we put a path name into a variable and that path contains UTF8 characters.
