Description of problem:
When running the cal command in the Simplified Chinese locale, the
month year order is not in Chinese locale. The year should come before
the month, and the Chinese character for year should be suffixed after
the numerical year. Also the month number should be Arabic and not
Chinese, when used with Simplified Chinese locale.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
util-linux-2.12a-16

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1. login using Simplified Chinese locale
2. open a terminal window
3. run the cal command

Comment 1 Mitrophan Chin 2005-01-13 19:36:33 UTC
Created attachment 109735 [details]
added Chinese msgstr to misc-utils/cal.c:439 and misc-utils/cal.c:780

In CJK environment, you may want to swap the arguments around with year
following by month, eg:

usage: cal [-13smjyV] [year [month]]

Comment 2 Elliot Lee 2005-01-19 23:28:25 UTC
Changing the arguments around is going to confuse scripts and such - I
don't think that part will happen. But thanks for the patch, which I
hope to apply sometime in the near future. If you would like to send
it to the upstream maintainer as well, that'd be nice.

Comment 3 John Thacker 2007-01-13 19:53:14 UTC
(This is a mass update to bugs which have been in NEEDINFO unmodified for over a
year and are for a currently unsupported version of Fedora Core.)

Closing per lack of response to previous request for information.
This bug was originally filed against a much earlier version of Fedora
Core, and significant changes have taken place since the last version
for which this bug is confirmed.

Note that FC3 and FC4 are supported by Fedora Legacy for security
fixes only.  Please install a still supported version and retest.  If
it still occurs on FC5 or FC6, please reopen and assign to the correct
version.  Otherwise, if this a security issue, please change the
product to Fedora Legacy.  Thanks, and we are sorry that we did not
get to this bug earlier.
