Issue #10493 has been updated by Luis Lavena.


Davis,

You can build Ruby easily by using RubyInstaller recipes:

You will also need a clone of Ruby source code and usage of `LOCAL` to indicate the PATH where to find Ruby source code.

See examples in RubyInstaller's readme.

Cheers.

Bug #10493: Wrong encoding for Etc.getlogin in Windows
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/10493#change-49901

* Author: Dvis Mosns
* Status: Closed
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee: 
* Category: ext
* Target version: current: 2.2.0
* ruby -v: ruby 2.1.4p265 (2014-10-27 revision 48166) [x64-mingw32]
* Backport: 2.0.0: REQUIRED, 2.1: REQUIRED
----------------------------------------

~~~ruby
name = Etc.getlogin # I've Windows username "Dvis"
puts name           # Dvis
puts name.inspect   # "D\xE2vis"
puts name.encoding  # ASCII-8BIT
name.force_encoding('Windows-1257')
puts name           # Dvis
~~~

As you can see \xE2 isn't "" in ASCII, but it is for Windws-1257 encoding.
