Description Anthony Green 2003-08-20 11:11:32 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030225

Description of problem:
If you log in using a french language locale, gdb will emit nice french messages
to the console, some of which contain accents.  These messages look garbled when
displayed through Eclipse.

For instance, here's a gdb error message that looks great on the console, but
messed up through Eclipse.

Warning: Cannot insert breakpoint 0.  Error accessing memory address 0x1: Erreur

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log in using french.
2.Create a simple hello world app
3.Step through to the very end.  I get the above error message every time when I
run the Taroon beta eclipse snapshot on RHL9.

Comment 1 Tom Tromey 2003-09-19 22:46:05 UTC
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.
