Update of bug #49685 (project octave):

                  Status:               Confirmed => Patch Submitted        


Follow-up Comment #9:

The attached patch adds the function dir_encoding (DIR, ENCODING) that can be
used to override the mfile encoding setting for a certain directory.

I did some preliminary tests with a UTF-8 encoded script containing some
non-ASCII characters:

>> tst_umlaut

Test mit Umlauten: äöüß
>> a=dir_encoding('.', 'iso8859-1')

a = utf-8
>> clear tst_umlaut

>> tst_umlaut

Test mit Umlauten: äöüÃ

It might be necessary to add some tilde expand, file name canonicalization or
other things necessary to get reliable file paths.
It probably also needs some logic for +namespaces, @class and private
But it should be ready for some initial tests.

Feedback e.g. about the function interface would be very welcome.
