/utf8output (Visual Basic)

Displays compiler output using UTF-8 encoding.

Syntax

/utf8output[+ | -]  

Arguments

+ | -
Optional. The default for this option is /utf8output-, which means compiler output does not use UTF-8 encoding. Specifying /utf8output is the same as specifying /utf8output+.

Remarks

In some international configurations, compiler output cannot be displayed correctly in the console. In such situations, use /utf8output and redirect compiler output to a file.

Note

The /utf8output option is not available from within the Visual Studio development environment; it is available only when compiling from the command line.

Example

The following code compiles In.vb and directs the compiler to display output using UTF-8 encoding.

vbc /utf8output in.vb
