After upgrade to GNU Octave 6.2.0 on Debian 5.10.140-1 the output
of octave ignored the encoding of the text strings in the source m-file. This was resolved by _mfile_encoding_("...") command in .octaverc file no matter whether system-wide, personal or in current working directory, but only in the case when octave was called from terminal. When called from cgi-script of web application (eg. from a perl script using system command), .octaverc is ignored (again no matter whether system-wide, personal or in current working directory). The non-ascii characters in printed text are replaced by question-mark characters.
