Wingrass needs newer tcl version due to bug in file encodings

Reported by: marisn Owned by: grass-dev@…
Priority: critical Milestone: 6.4.0
Component: Packaging Version: svn-releasebranch64
Keywords: wingrass Cc:
CPU: Unspecified Platform: MSWindows Vista

Description

There is an bug in tcl used in current wingrass packages that prevents tcl usage with non-latin filenames. In version 8.5.8.1 directories work fine (couldn't find exact entry in tcl bugzilla, still I got a hint in #tcl that there where fixes regarding encodings on Windows).

Test with:

mkdir "āšņļ"
wish
puts [file isdirectory [tk_chooseDirectory]]

Wiht current Wingrass included tcl/tk it returns 0 for "āšņļ" directory, with 8.5.8.1 from ActiveState? it returns 1, as it should be.

Tested failure with WinGRASS-6.4.SVN-r41363 on Windows Vista region set to Latvia.

This report should go to OSGeo4W bug-tracker. Anyway from my POV it's 'critical' bug.

Sorry for reporting in wrong place. I will contact this package maintainer "Martin Landa" and probably he will give exact link etc. info where and what to report to OSGeo4W, as I have no idea about that. I'm not following closely Wingrass development and thus had false impression that Wingrass is packed by GRASS team members and OSGeo4W is an alternate version.

Probably you know ML alias 'martinl';-) WinGRASS is compiled in OSGeo4W environment CompileOnWindows.

Or better to say you have already contacted him.

WinGRASS is compiled in OSGeo4W environment CompileOnWindows.

So please contact OSGeo4W Tcl/Tk? maintainer.
