[sword-devel] In Windows command shell, diatheke search is restricted to ASCII for the query key!

Thanks Karl.

I suppose Linux also succeeds when the *en dash* is properly used with any
of the "hyphenated" names such as:


Under Windows CMD, diatheke changes these to U+00FB LATIN SMALL LETTER U

S:\>xiphos\diatheke -b KJV -s phrase -k Abel–beth–maachah
Verses containing "Abelûbethûmaachah"-- none (KJV)

All this is very unsatisfactory!

btw. is the diatheke search type regex supposed to treat a dot as "any
character" or does that only work in PCRE search patterns?

Best regards,
