    SFX; diacritics: "Cannot decode string with wide characters at ..."

    • Article Type: General

    Search for system number 689475 in catalogue at

    click SFX button

    Get error:

    Software error:
    Cannot decode string with wide characters at /exlibris/sfx_ver/app/perl-5.10.1/lib/5.10.1/i686-linux/ line174.

    I suspect that the problem is caused by the third editor name - Jaggar, Si?n.
    Can you please remove the ? (the a with circumflex) from the editor name and let me know if sfx menu is still failing?

    Later: Yes, that worked, which identifies the problem. I've put the circumflex back and it breaks again.
