From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; ja-JP; rv:1.2.1) Gecko/20030303

Description of problem:
Since we have decided to use UTF-8 locale, we can't look at EUC-JP manpages. so
basically it needs to be converted to UTF-8.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1.LANG=ja_JP.UTF-8 man 5 shadow

Actual Results:  more warnings are output, and manpages is not readable.

Expected Results:  no warnings and readable.

Additional info:

I'm refiling this due to bugzilla issue.

Fixing in 4.0.3-13.  Is there a systematic way of doing this sort of thing which
is preferred over one-off solutions like the one used this time?

Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2003-10-24 13:02:19 UTC
Well, actually all manpages should has any information what encoding it is
using. e.g. .encoding UTF-8. and basically groff should converts it according to
that and current locale. but no such rules right now. so what we can do now is
just using iconv or something.
