Using the configuration
(eval-after-load "em-term" '(progn (add-to-list 'eshell-visual-subcommands '("git" "diff" "help" "log" "show")) (add-to-list 'eshell-visual-options '("git" "--help" "--paginate"))))
git help diff in a
term-mode buffer. The buffer file coding system of this buffer is set to utf-8.
Even so utf-8 characters in the output of
git help diff are shown as octal codes (see
doesn't in the last line):
--full-diff Without this flag, git log -p <path>... shows commits that touch the specified paths, and diffs about the same specified paths. With this, the full diff is shown for commits that touch the specified paths; this means that "<path>..." limits only commits, and doesn\342\200\231t limit diff for those commits.
I assume that the problem is connected to the following section of the function
;; The process's output contains not just chars but also binary ;; escape codes, so we need to see the raw output. We will have to ;; do the decoding by hand on the parts that are made of chars. (coding-system-for-read 'binary)
Is there a workaround?
I 've tried the method described in "Unicode characters in emacs term-mode". They don't work.
