Now paste it into a terminal shall via cat > /dev/null and it works fine (suggesting that the terminal emulator and the bash configuration are all ok). Paste it into a Quartz emacs.app and it works fine, too (suggesting emacs is just fine, too).
but try pasting it into a terminal emacs, and hell breaks loose Wrong type argument: char-or-string-p, 134217795. Unlike quartz emacs, the terminal emacs also displays UTF-8 characters badly, for example, with \u2502 instead of the vertical line. Pretty sure this is related.
there are apparently many moving parts here–utf8, terminal emulation, bash, and emacs. I have tried a whole host of related configurations, but have not stumbled onto the right ones.
what config does it take to convince terminal emacs to be julia-utf8 friendly? help, as always, appreciated.
hi tamas—I am sorry for the confusion. I don’t mean pasting this into a julia REPL window. Just paste it into a text window. I am just trying to write explanations that are interspersed with Julia output.
I am sure—this is not a julia issue. I had just hoped that others had run into the same problem and solved it. (I often work on a remote terminal, rather than a GUI, which is why this is very inconvenient. thanks, antoine, too: it is a weird combination problem of iterm2 and term-emacs, then…grrr.)
