Description Bernd Groh 2003-01-23 00:33:28 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020830

Description of problem:
When using the module Encode and trying to convert either from or to 'GB18030',
using Encode::from_to, I'll get the message:

Unknown encoding 'GB18030'

Since I believe 'GB18030' should be supported, I thought that this might be a bug.


Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. write following perl-script:
use Encode;
$string = $ARGV[0];
Encode::from_to($string, 'GB18030', 'UTF8');
print "$string\n";
2. make it executable and execute it

Actual Results:  Follwing Error-Message appears:
Unknown encoding 'GB18030' at <path to script>/<script> line 4

Expected Results:  The GB18030-encoded string provided as argument to the script
should have been displayed (assuming STDOUT is screen) in UTF8-encoding.

Is this still an issue in RHEL4, FC3, or FC4?

Comment 2 Warren Togami 2005-09-11 10:53:39 UTC
Closing due to lack of response and RH8 is not a supported product.
