Adam Bartoš added the comment: I'm not sure this is the right issue. The support for Unicode filenames is not (at least on Windows) ideal.
Let α.py be a Python script with invalid syntax. > py α.py File "<encoding error>", line 2 as as compile error ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax On the other hand, if run.py is does something like path = sys.argv with tokenize.open(path) as f: source = f.read() code = compile(source, path, "exec") exec(code, __main__.__dict__) we get > py run.py α.py File "Python Unicode\\u03b1.py", line 2 as as compile error ^ SyntaxError: invalid syntax (or 'File "Python Unicode\α.py", line 2' depending on whether sys.stdout can encode the string). So the "<encoding error>" in the first example is unfortunate as it is easy to get better result even by a simple pure Python approach. ---------- nosy: +Drekin _______________________________________ Python tracker <rep...@bugs.python.org> <http://bugs.python.org/issue19518> _______________________________________ _______________________________________________ Python-bugs-list mailing list Unsubscribe: https://mail.python.org/mailman/options/python-bugs-list/archive%40mail-archive.com
