The problem is simply:
You write some lines of code with your favourite editor, on plattform A, the file gets stored as ascii + some local code enhancements.
Then you transfer the files to a different plattform/mashine with a different codeset.
In the best case the names of variables, etc. changed quite dramatically in the rest, just forget the result.
