Actual results: the text layout is not good.

Description of problem:
Japanese man pages do not insert newline code between Japanese sentence.
Because Japanese and Chinese sentense do not divide words by space,
groff seems to avoid breaking line.

I looked in /usr/share/groff/current/tmac/ directory and I found several L10N files such as ja.tmac, fr.tmac and de.tmac.
In ja.tmac, Japanese character class is specified correctly, but this file seems not to be enabled.

Do I have to load these files manually to localize man page?

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

Actual results:
see attached image file.

Expected results:
I added the following line to andoc.tmac file and captured the image as attached file.
*** andoc.tmac.bak	2013-10-02 03:00:22.000000000 +0900

Hi, Takayuki,

setting the following:

$ export LANG=ja
$ export LC_ALL=ja_JP.UTF8

I see expected result. What is you setting of these variables?

$ export | grep LANG
$ export | grep LC_ALL

will show their values.

I get your actual result by displaying man man and then re-sizing the page to smaller width.

Hello, Jan.
Thanks for the reply.

The result of them are as below. LC_ALL is not defined in my environment.

[takayuki@localhost ~]$ export | grep LANG
declare -x LANG="ja_JP.UTF-8"
[takayuki@localhost ~]$ export | grep LC_ALL
[takayuki@localhost ~]$
