lfs can't use UTF-8 or UTF-16.

On Windows, Quylthulg [1] has all the functionality of lfs and supports UTF-8 / UTF16.


UTF-8 only, also it's rather hastily hacked together and may be overhauled at any time... there are stuff I don't fully trust in there, but I have been using it to synchronize to Flash drives and external HDDs for several months now.

I would rather a more mainstream module like LuaFileSystem pick up support for Unicode; this would ensure at least some level of long-term support or dependability.

Another way would be to run Lua on Cygwin 1.7... it should work I suppose but I haven't gotten around installing Cygwin 1.7 yet.
