Follow-up Comment #3, bug #58860 (project octave):

Variables of type "char" are expected to be UTF-8 encoded inside Octave.
Missing conversions at the interfaces are bugs.
This seems to be one of those bugs.

You are right: Currently, the default .m file encoding is the "native"
encoding configured for the system Octave is running on. This is probably a
good choice imho.

However, there is currently no way of setting a file encoding on a
per-directory basis (like proposed in the thread to which you linked). I agree
that it would make sense to make that possible.

I believe there was a bug report about this. But I can't find it at the
If there is none, it would probably be best to open one and discuss the
general issue there.
