Jindrich, I don't think you should apply the patch in comment 1. I
contacted Vladimir Nadvornik about this and he's working on this. This
patch differs from the approach in the other UTF-8 patches. I think
using an mbstrlen in the appropriate place is more conforming to the
used code style in the other parts.
This bug is a duplicate of bug 136826. Closing.
*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 136826 ***
As this report is actually about three issues I'll reopen it. Next
time please first check bugzilla, and file different reports for
different issues. The help issue is already in bugzilla as you can
see, so you should have opened two bug reports, one about the man page
issue and one about the conversion issue.
Further discussion of UTF-8 issues with help under bug 136826.
Andy, I switched encoding from koi8-r to koi8-u in case of Ukranian
hints and added non-en man pages. Thanks for the report.
All will be seen to be ok, except polish man pages that contains mc.1.
Fixed in mc-4.6.1-0.9.
Missed tussian and ukrainian conversation of manuals and help files
from freshen updates of FC3.
