I use putty at home to connect to my Ubuntu VMs for development and I was getting garbled output for tree.
fluong@ubuntu:~/pyjnx$ tree . âââ auth âÂ Â âââ __init__.py âÂ Â âââ __init__.pyc âÂ Â âââ userpass.py âÂ Â âââ userpass.pyc
I did some searching and found this solution: setting UTF-8 remote character set for putty.
Now everything is pretty and I am happy.
fluong@ubuntu:~/pyjnx$ tree . ├── auth │ ├── __init__.py │ ├── __init__.pyc │ ├── userpass.py │ └── userpass.pyc
