Ah, I forgot about bug #64820. The dev version posted there actually fixes this problem as well. Will this ship with Octave 9?

Wed 10 Jan 2024 04:13:26 PM UTC, original submission:  

I've stumbled across another issue if there is a non-ASCII in a directory name. The print() command for saving a figure doesn't work then.

Assuming one has a directory with such a character, e.g., "C:\Täst", it can be reproduced via:

% make some plot

The output I get is:

error: Magick++ exception: Magick: Unable to open file (C:\Täst\test.png) reported by magick/blob.c:3119 (OpenBlob)
error: called from
    __imwrite__ at line 221 column 3
    imwrite at line 125 column 5
    print at line 782 column 13
    testscript at line 1 column 1

If I use a directory without such a non-ASCII character, but the file name contains one, e.g. "C:\Test\täst.png", there is no error thrown but the file name is screwed up: "täst.png".
