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

It was worth a test inside cygwin and the result was also a fail:

$ xiphos/diatheke -b KJV -s regex -k Æneas
Verses containing "ãneas"-- none (KJV)

I tried it with this too, and that fare no better:

$ utils/diatheke -b KJV -s phrase -k Æneas
Verses containing "ãneas"-- none (KJV)

That's my link to where the utils from our ftpmirror had been downloaded.

Is it even worth installing PowerShell ?  

I'm beginning to think that diatheke.exe was never designed to cope with
non-ASCII searches.
