[FIXED] Wide character in print warning on Windows
#1
Code:
Wide character in print at C:\Program Files (x86)\get_iplayer\get_iplayer.pl line 3749.

I have noticed a couple of times recently the above appearing as I have been downloading various programs, the line number is not always the same. It doesn't seem to affect the download. It happened on a couple of programs today but not all.

I just wondered what it means
