Description Bastien Nocera 2005-06-20 15:38:02 UTC
On a RHEL4 system:
$ PAGER=cat LANG=C man Xcursor | head
XXX
XXX WARNING: old character encoding and/or character set
XXX
XCURSOR(3)                                                          XCURSOR(3)
<snip>

On a RHEL3 system:
$ PAGER=cat LANG=C man Xcursor
iconv: illegal input sequence at position 205

Comment 1 Bastien Nocera 2005-06-21 10:08:29 UTC
The request is for man not to error out if the man page isn't the right
encoding, not to fix the Xcursor man page.

Comment 2 Ivana Varekova 2005-06-22 10:56:16 UTC
This request is a groff problem.
