[debian-devel:12133] Re: groff (non-ISO8859-1 manpages)


I modified groff and man-db.

 - Add 'ascii8' device to groff, which is 8-bit clean and don't use
   ISO-8859-1 characters for hyphenation, '\(co', and so on.  This
   device is intended to be used for non-ASCII/ISO-8859-1 (that is,
   ISO-8859-2, KOI8-R, and so on) languages (Polish, Hungarian, Russian,
   and so on).

 - Man-db uses the 'ascii8' device for non-ASCII/ISO-8859-1 manpages.

 - Man-db uses 'ascii' device for English manpages when user environment
   is not ISO-8859-1.

 - Man-db uses 'nippon' device for Korean manpages.  This works well
   for me on hanterm.  Is this OK?  ('ascii8' and 'latin1' didn't work ---
   Hangul characters are not displayed at all.  I don't know the reason.)

The patches are registered with BTS (#62840 for groff and #62844 for
