Fresh brew installation on High Sierra

(Goudeuk2000) #1

Hello everyone

I am trying to install brew on a High Sierra machine with no previous brew installations.

However I get this error:
-e:280:in `’: invalid byte sequence in US-ASCII (ArgumentError)

How can I resolve this please?
Many thanks

Hello Kuri

Yes latest Xcode was installed. I end up installing Macports instead.

Thank you
