Description of problem:
Japanese manpage is encoded by EUC-JP.
It's necessary to convert it into UTF-8.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
2.man 1 w3m
Fixed in 0.5.1-3. pending for FC2 updates.
FC2-updates for w3m still does not exist.
Bruno Haible claims that glibc would do this translation.
Does Fedora use a reduced set of runtime translations?
er, since the manpage doesn't have any tags to determine which
encoding is used, glibc shouldn't be able to do anything. instead, we
have the hacked man and groff to detect the encoding - if the manpage
is using non-UTF-8 encoding, it also shows the warning message on the
top of manpage.
oops - sorry. I was looking at a comment about
message files in a different window and responded
to the wrong one.
fixed in 0.5.1-3.1 for FC2-updates
