Description Leonard den Ottolander 2004-04-17 21:52:21 UTC
man-pages-1.60-4

Illegal character in english translation of man 2 getrlimit. When
using LANG=en_US.ISO-8859-1 man aborts with an error:

iconv: illegal input sequence at position 1829.

When running
(LANG=en_US.UTF-8; man getrlimit)
you can see illegal characters in the title bar.

Note that the affected file is /usr/share/man/en/man2/getrlimit.2.gz,
not /usr/share/man/man2/getrlimit.2.gz. These files differ only in one
character (the accented a in "Havard Lygre"), so why not drop the
whole english translation?

Comment 1 Eido Inoue 2004-04-19 19:20:26 UTC
The current release of nroff & man (in the fc rawhide) contains code
to handle legacy character sets... both in the man page source and for
the target terminals
