Description of problem:
To avoiding the different encoding output easily, how about adding the
elisp to autodetecting terminal-encoding-system according to the locale?
I'm often loggin into the remote machine which has the different
locale and run it with -nw then. (e.g. local machine is ja_JP.UTF-8
but remote machine is ja_JP.eucJP). so the terminal is running as
ja_JP.UTF-8, and output from the remote machine is EUC-JP. basically
such output is broken. so if it's set according to the current locale,
it would be great.

Here is what I actually use:
(condition-case nil
     (intern (let ((target (shell-command-to-string "locale charmap")))
               (downcase (substring target
                                    0 (1- (length target)))))))

As Bug#114807 has already been closed, perhaps is this issue already
fixed too?
Comment 2 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-12 05:36:16 EDT
Hmm, I guess not. I just tried to login to the remote machine from my
laptop pc working on EUC-JP, and change the locale to ja_JP.eucjP on
the remote machine, run emacs -nw, type M-x info, find out Mew-J info
page. look at that then.
This steps works on xemacs, but not emacs. probably emacs is needed
same fix as you did for Bug#114807.
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2004-04-12 21:32:05 EDT
Hmmm, with auto-compression-mode the gzipped ja info pages
display ok, not without.  Perhaps we shouldn't compress them
or turn on auto-compression-mode by default?  Or is there a
better way to fix this?
Comment 4 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-12 22:33:02 EDT
indeed. are there any problem to turn on auto-compression-mode by default?
Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2004-04-15 10:51:53 EDT
Ok, let's try turning on auto-compression-mode in default,el.
Comment 6 Jens Petersen 2004-04-15 13:18:57 EDT
It should be in 21.3-12.
Comment 7 Akira TAGOH 2004-04-16 05:07:09 EDT
confirmed the fix, Thanks!
