Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 83215
Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected end of string)
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:50:31 EDT
When using texi2html, for example
texi2html -monolithic gcompris.texi
the following error occurs:
Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected end of string) at /usr/bin/texi2html line
3039, <FH001> line 147.
Please supply a small test case.
Created attachment 89780 [details]
[marius@marte C]$ texi2html gcompris.texi
Split loop at /usr/bin/texi2html line 5354, <FH001> line 56.
It stops when it finds a non-ascii UTF-8 character.
this looks like a perl bug, changing componentto perl
The bug component was changed to perl, however the assigned bug
owner wasn't changed to the perl maintainer. This bug was fixed
in perl a while back according to other bug reports, however I
don't want to close it prematurely.
Reassigning to Chip, for him to confirm and close.
I had the same problem on WHEL 3.0 and resolved it by upgrading
texi2html to the latest version from source.
Err, excuse me, WBEL 3.0 (got my RHEL and WBEL confused)!
Very sorry for the long delay in processing this bug.
This problem does not occur with perl in all current Red Hat releases.
