QE ack for RHEL4.5.
Comment 19 Thomas E. Dickey 2007-01-14 20:29:47 EST
not a bug.  The example is emitting 8-bit characters
in POSIX locale (which makes them non-printable).
It doesn't provide any information on what the code
is supposed to produce, nor the environment in which
it runs.
Comment 20 Miroslav Lichvar 2007-01-15 03:10:05 EST
Thomas, this is the bug fixed in patch 20050320 and 20050327, the particular
locale is EUC-JP.
Comment 22 Thomas E. Dickey 2007-01-16 20:29:29 EST
oh (then I'm confused -sorry).
