New submission from Magnus Valle:
My script reports this problem:
$ python bug.py
File "bug.py", line 4
SyntaxError: Non-ASCII character '\xc2' in file bug.py on line 4, but no
encoding declared; see http://www.python.org/peps/pep-0263.html for details
This error looks fine and all, but the problem is that the non-ASCII
character (in this case '¤') is in a comment, not in the script itself.
If I remove it the non-ASCII character from the comment, it runs perfectly.
I always assumed that comment didn't effect the script.
This isn't exactly a big problem, but I don't think it should be this way.
I included the demo script.
$ python -V
title: Unicode in a comment.
versions: Python 2.5
