RFE: rebase zsh for the newer utf-8 support
Last modified: 2013-03-26 11:43:02 EDT
Description of problem:
zsh older than 4.3.1 does not handle the inputting utf8 string properly.
Thus the inputting utf8 string looks messy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. In gnome-terminal, with zsh as current shell.
2. copy the string "中文" (chinese)
3. past in zsh
The screen showing the string 中�^�^
The screen showing the string 中文
I've also built and tried zsh-4.3.10 in RHEL5, it works for me.
So maybe you can consider upgrade the zsh.
This is unlikely to be added, as it's such a big change and would likely break something.
That's why I seek professional opinion. :-)
After your investigation, if you still feel that the upgrade is inappropriate, though it is a pity, I understand.
As James indicated in comment 1, this is rather big change and it has potential to break things. Since we are now in very late stage of RHEL5 development cycle, this is unacceptable. I'm sorry but I have to close the bug, it won't be addressed in RHEL5.
