Turkish Characters gets trasnlated to english with INIWrite and ConsoleWrite

Reported by: anonymous Owned by:

When I'm trying to output text via ConsoleWrite or INIWrite I notice that Turkish characters are tranlated to english counterparts. This is causing error in string comparisons.

If I write turkish dotless i (ı) I notice that it was converted to i during INIWrite and ConsoleWrite.

Can you add Encoding to INIread/Write and ConsoleWrite as in FileWrite and FileRead ?

Best Regards,

Affected characters are:
İ -> I (i with dot)
Ğ -> G (G Breve)
Ş -> S (S Cedilla)
ı -> I (dotless i)
ğ -> g (g Breve)
ş -> s (s Cedilla)

not-converted characters (read and written as is):

ConsoleWrite() outputs in ANSI (or UTF-8). This is a Windows limitation. I doubt very seriously the Ini functions are doing any conversion. However, I can't say for sure since you didn't bother to read the big red box explaining how to properly submit a bug report. Without an actual script I can tweak to confirm it's actually ConsoleWrite() and not the Ini functions, I'm just going to close this on the assumption it is ConsoleWrite() since I know for a fact it outputs in ANSI.
