Script Compatibility

Non-7-bit ASCII characters in plain text files, such as MATLAB® scripts or functions, created with one locale setting might not be compatible with a different locale setting. This can happen when a script written on a Windows® platform is run on a Linux® platform, because the platforms use different default locale settings.

For example, if you create a script with the ja_JP.UTF-8 locale setting on a Linux system, the script might not be compatible when executed on a Windows platform with the Japanese_Japan.932 locale setting.
