[Gmsh] problem in gshhs2geo.py

I doubt this has anything to do with gmsh itself: the error you’re getting
is obviously related to a unicode decoding.

Also, your problem on this mailing list is not well-defined: what is this
gshhs2geo.py, where does it come from? All I can see for now is that this
script is calling a python method for which we don’t have the source:
binh = fgshhs.read(11 * 4)

It is possible the developer of this script intended it to be used only on
python2.x, not python3.x, which is apparently what you’re using. Check with
the developer of this script to solve your error.
