Source Code Control with Full Unicode that integrates with Eclipse [message #73412] Thu, 24 August 2006 13:10 Go to next message

Need a SCC tool that flawlessly handles ASCII and UNICODE text files
containing English and Japanese characters. I would prefer an open source
solution and I've tried CVS and CVSNT, but the Eclipse CVS plugins don't
support unicode. Even when an UTF-8 text file is stored as binary, the
History Viewer still garbles the Japanese.

It would be used on a Win 2K.

Thanks,
EOtter

Subversion and Subclipse handle this fine. Subversion works great with
UTF-8 encoded files. If you use UTF-16 or UTF-32 it still handles them
properly but it will not auto-merge the content. So if you have local
mods to a UTF-16 file and do an update, it will make you manually
resolve the conflict. Otherwise, it will update the file OK.

For UTF-8, however, it handles everything.

Subversion and Subclipse will also properly handle UTF-8 text in things
like commit messages. There are a lot of people using Subclipse in
Asia. We have had localizations contributed for Japanese and both
Simplified and Traditional Chinese.
