While trying to run a python script in an Inferior Python buffer for Python 3.3.5 in my Emacs 24.3.1 GTK+ window, I get a
>>> Traceback (most recent call last): File "<stdin>", line 1, in <module> File "/usr/local/lib/python3.3/encodings/ascii.py", line 26, in decode return codecs.ascii_decode(input, self.errors) UnicodeDecodeError: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc3 in position 1332: ordinal not in range(128)
This even happens when all my buffer contains is the minimum to make it a python script containing a unicode character.
#!/usr/bin/env python3 "ε"
There appears to also be some magic that replaces all non-ascii characters from the first line (?) of input with whitespace, because just
gives me the string
" ", trying to do
ε=4 results in an
ord("ε") on the first line of a file returns
32. This may be related; however, if the non-ascii symbols appear after the first line, all these constructions result in a
As you can see, I haven't even started outputting any unicode symbols, and the Inferior Python buffer accepts input of unicode characters. Running the same python script in a terminal (
urxvt or a random tty) works without problems as well.
What do I need to change to make it work?
