Description Bastien Nocera 2005-06-20 11:38:02 EDT
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 06:08:29 EDT
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 06:56:16 EDT
This request is a groff problem.
