I copy the above snippet and name it and run with 
fracobaldi3.01 + lilypond2.19.82 it produces desired file infomation.

Then I rename the file as test_中文.ly (UTF-8 Chinese characters) and execute and 
the following error occurs:

Starting lilypond-windows.exe 2.19.82 [test_中文.ly]...
warning: cannot find file: `C:/Users/yming/Documents/test_??.ly'
fatal error: failed files: "C:/Users/yming/Documents/test_??.ly"
Exited with return code 1.

Question: Window 10 support UTF-8 file name and lilypond does not. Is there any 
work around?
