Error on bad encoding in weather file

Create issue
Issue #23 resolved
Peter Ellis created an issue

Selecting a weather file with the Browse button in the Run Simulation dialog, generates an error message if the weather file has any bad character encodings (non UTF-8). Euclid should catch encoding problems and handle them gracefully, not crash.

For example, the ã character in São Paulo in the attached weather file has a bad encoding.

ERROR:
ArgumentError
invalid byte sequence in UTF-8
