Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 173309
Hexviewer does not display ASCII chars anymore
Last modified: 2013-07-02 19:11:46 EDT
Description of problem:
The Hexviewer in the embedded viewer does not show the printable ASCII chars
anymore but prints only '.'.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
0. open an xterm
2. move to a file and F3
3. press F4
In the right column, only '.' are displayed
Right column shows printable chars and replaces only the non-printable ones by '.'
Ok, it was caused by a bug in the UTF-8 patch. The original code tried to
display the UTF-8 characters even in the hexviewing/editing mode, what's pretty
odd. I removed this ill-designed feature to display the characters correctly.
