Description supaphat21 2010-06-27 01:36:54 UTC
Description of problem: wget does not appear to properly encode apostrophe characters. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): wget-1.12-1.2.el6.x86_64 How reproducible: Steps to Reproduce: 1. download a file with wget 2. search the man wget for the phrase "donât" 3. type wget -V and notice other characters not being encoded properly Actual results: File download output: Saving to: âfile.tgz.1â 100%[==========================================================================================>] 112,517 292K/s in 0.4s 2010-06-26 21:27:57 (292 KB/s) - âfile.tgz.1â Expected results: Saving to: `file.tgz.1' 100%[==========================================================================================>] 112,517 292K/s in 0.4s 2010-06-26 21:27:57 (292 KB/s) - `file.tgz.1' Additional info:

This could be unrelated to wget but more towards the locale I am using en_US.UTF-8 however this is the first I have noticed this issue.

which terminal are you using ? konsole, xterm, gnome-terminal ? Or is this without X on the console ?
Comment 6 supaphat21 2010-07-12 00:45:15 UTC
After looking more closely at the situation the issue isn't exactly an issue with wget. However, the behavior is different then other linux/unix distros. This may be WAD, but here is what I have found for comparison. echo $TERM == xterm 1. ubuntu via local or putty: Saving to: `file.tgz' 2. solaris via openssh or putty: Saving to: `file.tgz' 2. rhel6 via openssh: Saving to: “file.tgz” 3. rhel6 via putty: Saving to: âfile.tgzâ So it appears as though putty doesn't understand the ” marks.
Comment 7 Karsten Hopp 2010-07-12 07:34:57 UTC
Please check putty's options and make sure that the character encoding is set to UTF-8. It might be that putty defaults to ISO-8859-1 or something similar.

Changing it to UTF-8 forces the quotation to be properly displayed. The default was ISO-8859-1. Thanks for the assistance.
