Description Jason Haar 2001-03-05 21:30:35 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/4.76 [en] (X11; U; Linux 2.4.2 i686)

When running "uudecode -h" under the French LOCALE, it returns all the
options it does under English EXCEPT FOR the "-o" option.

For some reason that's been missed in the translations.

This affects RH 6.2 and 7.0

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. export LOCALE=fr
2. uudecode -h

Actual Results:  see Description

Expected Results:  It should have returned the same options as the English

You should do export LANG=fr_FR instead LOCALE=fr. It will work

Comment 2 Jason Haar 2001-03-06 19:35:58 UTC
Sorry - but a user in France reported this to me as a problem with my product
which uses uudecode. I would have assumed he had his locale set correctly!
