Sorry for a stupid question, but how do I export the list into a .txt file?

Octahedron80 (talkcontribs)

Append your command with

> somefile.txt

This is common syntax to export output buffer to a file.

This works in Linux, but not in Windows.

Octahedron80 (talkcontribs)

Windows works too. Try it.

^ It was going to work. I think you have issue with Unicode instead. 😅

David.Mirth (talkcontribs)

I have the same problem as mentioned above, I thought I am doing sth wrong... The problem is probably in Unicode or something, a friend of mine discusses this in a python forum, we'll se :)

I tried change codepage of console via 'chcp 65001' and 'chcp 1252'. The console, the script, and script out is good understand utf-8. (Like python pwb.py listpages -subcatsr:"Категория:Родившиеся в IX веке".) Python good open|write file|console on utf-8. The error is only when python redirect stdout to file in Windows.
