  • What you need is told MinGW which encoding your source file used if is not UTF-8.

    In addition, MinGW-gcc4.4 seems have a bug, maybe -finput-charset=charset will refuse to work. You can try to update your MinGW to 4.6 +

  • i cant understand your means. i use UTF-8 method but take the same erorr!
