Hello all again,
I was wondering if anyone ever managed to get zsh and UTF-8 support working.
I tried even recompiling zsh forcing utf-8 support(which it has been having for
some time now) but it seems to be failing(at detecting it?).
>From what I gathered zsh is heavily dependent on the locale system, which
used to be a problem since newlib only supports C locales.
But according to the newlib ml, it now supports C.UTF-8, which makes me
think that having zsh work with utf-8 should now be possible.
(Note: I'm talking of having zsh display&edit properly utf-8 in the line editor,
including the completion system).
If anyone has ever gotten it to work, or could look at it, I'd be very happy to hear
about it all.
(Note: we're talking of getting it to work with LC_ALL=C.UTF-8 since that's the only
unicode enabled locale available in newlib)
