ps.map unicode support
|Reported by:||kuszinger||Owned by:|
ps.map currently handles latin1 (iso8859-1) codepage texts in all manners.
Regarding the international use of GRASS GIS it would be essential to widen this option to support UTF-8 encoded strings for text, labelling and so on.
Extract from present ps.map manual:
"For users wanting to use special characters (such as accented characters) it is important to note that ps.map uses ISO-8859-1 encoding. This means that your instructions file will have to be encoded in this encoding. If you normally work in a different encoding environment (such as UTF-8), you have to transform your file to the ISO-8859-1 encoding, for example by using the iconv utility:
iconv -f UTF-8 -t ISO_8859-1 utf_file > iso_file "
