purpose of LC_ALL="en_US.UTF-8"
« on: April 29, 2015, 02:58:09 PM »

I just wanted to check the purpose of:
https://github.com/BitShares/bitshares/commit/b0efbee1b6d96f07b04788d9df85b7bd9161239d

Is it required for make, but not for regular use? Why is it required for make? thanks

I think this is optional and only required for 'strange' systems ..

It is required for building because the compiler (and other tools) must know how the source files are encoded.
I'd assume that most systems today have UTF-8 encoding configured per default, but it's better to be explicit there.
Please vote for my BitShares witness "cyrano" and for my STEEM witness "cyrano.witness"!
