#507 new defect

man pages contain H??kkinen

Reported by: Peter Johansson Owned by: Jari Häkkinen
Priority: trivial Milestone: svndigest 0.x+
Component: documentation Version: 0.9.3
Keywords: Cc:


Problem is that Häkkinen contains non-ascii characters. Having a look at coreutils may help e.g. cp is written by Torbjörn Granlund and --version output spells Torbjörn and man page spells Torbjorn.

This is no longer a problem in official tarballs as I do the releases on a newer machine that can handle non-ascii in a sensible way.

It seems the problem is that help2man uses the C locale by default. The default choice can be overridden via the -L option and when I e.g. issue:

make HELP2MAN="help2man -L en_AU.UTF-8"

the problem goes away.

Not sure if it's a good idea to alter the default, but perhaps we wanna leave this as a note in the README.

Replying to Peter Johansson:

We could change my name to Haekkinen?
