Greetings R wizards.
I have the following problem using Emacs Speaks Statistics:
When trying to set a working directory, or when trying to read a file
that is in a directory that has the character "á" (note that it has a
"spanish accent symbol": ´ ) R being ran from emacs tells me that the
directory doesn't exist, or that it can't be found, or:
> setwd("c:/Documents and Settings/Nicolás")
Error in setwd("c:/Documents and Settings/NicolÃ¡s") :
cannot change working directory
I do NOT have the same problem if I try to do this directly with R
GUI. In my opinion, emacs is "telling" R "NicolÃ¡s" when it should
"tell" it "Nicolás".
Thanks for your help. Thanks for R, and greetings to the hole
community of users, developers, etc.,
