Description Anthony Green 2003-08-20 07:03:47 EDT
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
Eclipse contains a number of classes for parsing the output from various tools
(GCC, make, gas, ld, etc).  Unfortunately, they are hardcoded to only look for
english output from these tools.  This means, for instance, that gcc error
parsing doesn't work when you log in using french or japanese.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in using French (or some non-English language)
2.Compile a C program that uses an undeclared variable
3.See how you get 3 lines instead of 1 in the task list.

Comment 2 Tom Tromey 2003-09-19 18:46:03 EDT
For the time being, I've set up the gcj-eclipse to force
LANG=C.  This also works around bugs reported on the public
compiled-eclipse list about locale-related failures.
BTW, these reports should be pushed to the upstream
eclipse.org bugzilla.
