Follow-up Comment #2, bug #55974 (project octave):

This is clearly a bug that Octave hangs in this case.

You can find attached another example. This new script 'test_iso88591_2.m'
(file encoded as ISO 8859-1) is simpler than the previous one and clearly
shows the bug on Linux. It contains only two lines:


On Linux, the first one is executed and the string is displayed as
'Fr�quence', which is what is expected.

The second line makes Octave 5.1.0 hang (OpenGL or fltk graphics toolkit).

In Octave 4.4.1, the second line does silently nothing, which is also a bug.

When a string is not encoded as expected, Octave should display it, with
garbage characters where the encoding differs, in console or graphics. 

(file #46610)
