Hello experts,

i have updated my macbookpro to maverick. my system is in english.

since then i have  some bash  scripts problems, for instance when i launch a script which contains sed commands. i receive :  sed: RE error: illegal byte sequence
 
i've google on this error and the solution should be for me - i'm using screen which load a .bashrc - to add to my .bashrc "export LC_ALL=C" or "export LC_ALL=POSIX"...

if i set on of the two in my .bashrc , i dont have the sed problem but i can not use accentuated characters in my CLI.

i have also exported
    LANG=fr_CH.UTF-8
but this doesn't change the behaviour,
i have set all: LC_MONETARY, LC_NUMERIC... with the same value as LANG .

can anyone tell me how to set this LC_* values in order to have my sed receiving utf-8 but also my CLI ?

thank you in advance for all your infos.

ok....sorry. i found out.
if i set on my .bashrc
export LC_ALL=POSIC.fr_CH.UTF-8
i have evertything back...


as a complement,
before updating my system to maverick i didn't have to set this values on my .bashrc and both; my CLI accepted "é" and my sed was runing without problem.
Since Maverick, sounds like it's necessary to set this LC_ALL variable.

i'm running OSX witch ".screen", screens needs a .bashrc.
