[BUG] io.open unable to open file path with non-utf8 characters

Post by Jax »

Code: Select all

io.open()
is unable to open files with paths which contain characters that isn't your standard English characters like 测试

This would prevent generation lua scripts to work with users who has non-English user names.

Lua just does not properly handle multi-byte unicode characters.
