PowerShell logging artifacts with Sisulizer

I am getting some artifacts in the logs when running Sisulizer from Continua CI using PowerShell.

Some of its output is prefixed with what shows up like


Example log.

I am also seeing another artifact from Eurekalog when they output the sizes in bytes.

That looks like a Byte Order Mark… I don’t know much about sisulizer but this looks to me like the tool is outputting the BOM when it’s stdout is redirected?

Not sure what is happening with Eurekalog, I can only suggest to try it from the powershell command line and see if that does the same.

Also, what Encoding setting do you have on the Powershell action in Continua.

That is possible. I just found that Sisulizer’s SLMake has a switch to use Ansi output.
I’ll dig a little further to see if I can capture the raw output, but don’t have time to do that right now.

PS Version: Default
Using: PowerShell.Default
Encoding name: Default

Hi Lars,

Try using PowerShell.Core 7, selecting UTF-8 in the Encoding field and checking the Automatically set PowerShell console output encoding to match process output encoding check box on the Options tab.

Hi Dave,
Using your settings without changing the parameters sent to SLMake cured the weird characters from Sisulizer.
