Description Tim Waugh 2003-02-03 16:12:00 UTC
Description of problem:
more(1) doesn't handle UTF-8 correctly.  In particular, underlining is broken.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
util-linux-2.11y-2

How reproducible:
100%

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Start gnome-terminal.
2. echo -ne '\137\010\342\200\220\012' | more

Actual results:
??? (first '?' underlined)

Expected results:
- (underlined)

It's because it wraps the 'underline on', 'underline off' code around the first
byte of the multibyte character, rather than the whole thing.
