TclX_CtypeObjCmd: UTF character longer than a int

Comment 1 Jens Petersen 2003-05-09 01:01:35 UTC
Can you explainly more carefully how to reproduce this, please?

I see:

~% tclsh
% ctype
invalid command name "ctype"
% ctype digit 1
invalid command name "ctype"

Comment 2 Kyle Bateman 2003-05-09 04:00:51 UTC
Looks like ctype is part of tclX (not standard tcl) so you have to use "tcl" not
"tclsh" to see the right error.  If that doesn't work, try the shell script:

ctype digit 1

Thanks, reproduced.

Comment 4 Jens Petersen 2004-02-26 07:06:41 UTC
Seems to be fixed with tcl-8.3.5-1 in FC devel.

Comment 5 Jens Petersen 2004-02-27 04:11:09 UTC
tclx-8.3.5-1, I mean.
