Description Jonathan Kamens 2001-06-04 17:29:57 UTC
Tcsh's KANJI feature was enabled in tcsh-6.09-6, which was included with
RedHat 7.0.  As a result, as of RedHat 7.0 or later, it's no longer
possible to create key bindings to meta characters (e.g., \377 for

Given that this is a regression in functionality, and that the majority
majority of people will never use tcsh's kanji support, I think that this
support should be disabled by default, e.g., by putting "set nokanji" in
one of the files in /etc/profile.

KANJI enabling has been removed until a move I18N solution can be found.
