    I have some files containing non-ascii characters, it can be either Scandinavian characters like åäö, but also non-ascii apostrophes and accent marks.

    Do someone know why this happens:

    C:\User\temp\ok>dir /b åäö*
    åäö.7z
    åäö.rar

    When just outputting them via DIR they display correctly.

    C:\User\temp\ok>dir /b åäö* | for %x in (@con) echo %x
    ???.7z
    ???.rar

    But if I do the equivalent thing with a pipe they are garbled.

    ...

    I actually found the problem when I wrote up this, if I enable Unicode output it works as I want to.

    However, can there be other side-effects to doing that? I just read another post that HISTORY /R does not work with Unicode input files. Does this option also affect how SHRALIAS saves the history when it unloads?

    The problem with HISTORY /R was fixed several builds ago.

    It does not affect SHRALIAS, which always saves in Unicode format.
