Planck 2018 likelihood with COBAYA: 'ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc2

Post by Thibaut Louis » September 29 2019

Hi,

I have installed COBAYA on NERSC and I have tried to also install the cosmology librairies
cobaya-install cosmo -m /path/to/modules
It works well but for the planck 2018 likelihood, this is a known problem, see for example:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=3223
I have followed Karim instructions, and the installation seems to be succesful.
However when I try to run the MCMC chains:
cobaya-run pl2018.yaml
I get:
[input] *ERROR* Failed to get defaults for module 'likelihood:planck_2018_highl_plik.TTTEEE' ['ascii' codec can't decode byte 0xc2 in position 75: ordinal not in range(128)]
Note that the other likelihoods in the yalm: planck_2018_lowl.TT, planck_2018_lowl.EE work fine.
Anyone experienced the same issue?
Cheers and Thanks,

Thibaut

That .yaml file looks OK in the current git, the offset seems to be the line end. Do you see an 0xc2 in the file?

Hi Antony,

Turns out that:

export LC_ALL=C.UTF-8
export LANG=C.UTF-8

solves the problem !
Cheers,

Thanks for the fix, Thibaut!

(I cannot actually find any non-ascii character in the file though.)
