Description markus 1999-05-11 13:04:06 UTC
After a new installation of Redhat 6.0 less won't display
latin1 characters correctly, although I chose a latin1
keyboard in setup. Solution is to set env. variable
LESSCHARSET=latin1

Comment 1 Preston Brown 1999-08-28 05:16:59 UTC
This is because you are not in a latin1 locale.  For instance, if you
set your LANG environment variable to en_US, and then try to view a
file with latin1 characters, you will have no problems.

You are by default in the "C" locale, i.e. ASCII.
