Package: xinput
Version: 1.6.1-1
Severity: minor

Dear Maintainer,

Even with LANG=C and LC_ALL=C which mandates 7-bit terminal, the
xinput command emits 8-bit characters.


# LC_ALL=C LANG=C xinput | od -c | head
0000000 342 216 241       V   i   r   t   u   a   l       c   o   r   e
0000020       p   o   i   n   t   e   r                                
0000040                                                  \t   i   d   =
0000060   2  \t   [   m   a   s   t   e   r       p   o   i   n   t   e
0000100   r           (   3   )   ]  \n 342 216 234             342 206
0000120 263       V   i   r   t   u   a   l       c   o   r   e       X
0000140   T   E   S   T       p   o   i   n   t   e   r                
0000160                                          \t   i   d   =   4  \t
0000200   [   s   l   a   v   e           p   o   i   n   t   e   r    
0000220       (   2   )   ]  \n 342 216 234             342 206 263    

According to the specification of the "C" locate, these characters
(for example the first Unicode Character 'LEFT SQUARE BRACKET UPPER
CORNER') should be replaced with something appropriate for the LANG=C
environment. In addition to that, all software should support the
LANG=C environment.
