Something changed in git in terms of file encoding.
These files were created using this code:
cmd = 'cd' localrep'/'zigirep ,
'&& git show' hcommit':'element ,
where localrep/zigirep, hcommit, element and file are all variables.
This is what I have on my work system for this use case using git version 2.26.2-78
t IBM-1047 T=on -rw-rw-rw- 1 SPLBD SYS1 1875 Feb 1 05:03 CHGSTR
But with git version 2.26.2-84 I get this:
t ISO8859-1 T=on -rw-rw-rw- 1 LBDYCK ZOWEDEV 1875 Feb 1 08:06 CHGSTR
To summarize this - with git 2.26.2-27 the git show generated file is tagged as IBM-1047 and then with git 2.26.2-84 it is now tagged as ISO8859-1.
Why the change and how can I control it?
