I'm hoping to look at Imagemagick today - so will try see why this is borked too.

Interesting - locale.xml includes:
  <include locale="de_DE.ISO-8859-1" file="deutsch.xml" />

but there is no deutsch.xml included anywhere in the imagemagick source....

I assume that setting lang=de gets around this as there is no known language de so imagemagick defaults to english

if you set lang=xyz then the command you posted also works...

the thread is about translating english.xml to deutsch.xml for contributing a localized version of imagemagic. It ends with a beta file deutsch.xml being available. Nothing more. Not related to the original problem.

The problem still exists in 6.2.8.

the -draw option still does not work with


but it works with

also tried

set locale=de_DE.ISO-8859-1

does not help.

does not talk about which lang / locale variable it expects.
Also tried to play with deutsch.xml with different variations of lang and locale, but nothing worked. I only get german messages if I edit english.xml
and translate to german.

Perhaps it's a libc - issue
