I retrieve data from a MySQL Database, containing special characters
(german umlaute - äöü).
The query itself works without problem, but displaying the data
generates an error at the first line containing such characters.
Whereas the following command works fine:
I assume that the problems are due to the database's character set,
which is latin1. Unfortunately I could not find any hint how to set
the right encoding for the database query.
Is anyone familiar with that problem?
