Does the -E command line option no longer set source file encoding?

dave[RUBY3/Book 12:44:13] cat t.rb
p __ENCODING__
dave[RUBY3/Book 12:46:47] ruby t.rb
#<Encoding:US-ASCII>
dave[RUBY3/Book 12:46:52] ruby -E utf-8 t.rb
#<Encoding:US-ASCII>


Also, can I confirm that US-ASCII is now the default, rather than  
ASCII-8BIT? If so, will -Kn be changed to use US-ASCII as well (it  
currently sets ASCII-8BIT)


Cheers


Dave
