Hi MATLAB community.
How can we display (in the prompt) latin characters, such as á, é, í, ó, ú, and ñ, using MATLAB R2010b/R2011a for mac (last iteration of Snow Leopard, 10.6.7)?
For example, when trying to run this script on MATLAB for mac
fprintf('Química, Matemáticas, Español.\n')
the prompt throws me
Qu?mica, Matem?ticas, Espa?ol.
which does not contain any of the latin characters I entered on my script, but those question marks as a replacement.
Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
P.S. 1: I am using an Apple Western Spanish keyboard to enter those latin characters.
P.S. 2: By prompt I am referring to the MATLAB Command Window.
Maybe I have been missing the embarrassingly obvious:
disp('Química, Matemáticas, Español.')
You could try changing the locale.
EDIT: I found a better solution:
fprintf(native2unicode('Química, Matemáticas, Español.','latin1'))
The output is:
Química, Matemáticas, Español.>>
I looked at this command earlier but didn't use it in the right way. You said you wanted a prompt, so I took out the \n.
Try this in your code
feature('DefaultCharacterSet', 'UTF8') %# for all Character support
or try 'Windows-1250' insted UTF8
'Windows-1250' for Central European languages that use Latin script, (Polish, Czech, Slovak, Hungarian, Slovene, Serbian, Croatian, Romanian and Albanian)
Note:- that UTF-8 can be used for all languages and is the recommended charset on the Internet.
