Subject: [Mono-dev] [PATCH] Use Encoding.Default as the default code page

> Hi,
> csc.exe uses Encoding.Default as the default code page that is system
> dependent unlike our current hard coded default code pages.
> Encoding.Default
> takes care (or at least should take care:) about everything so we don't
> have
> to use try-catch or store it in a variable like default_encoding. This
> patch
> simply changes default code page from 28591 to Encoding.Default.
> In addition to that this is the expected behaviour as csc.exe does the
> same
> this is what developers require as they edit source files on their system
> using their system default code page so they want to compile it using the
> same code page to get the expected result when compiling code.
> Note that previously we followed a wrong practicle by defining the code
> page
> we use in mcs tree as the default code page of our mcs copiler rather than
> passig this code page to mcs as command line argument. This is now fixed
> so
> we should use Encoding.Default as the default code page of mcs.
> Please review and approve the patch.
