Not sure how critical that issue is (e.g. byte counts [`-c`], line counts [`-l`], and such should still work as intended; whether word counts work or not depends on whether we should count Unicode whitespace as, well, whitespace). I do wonder if everyone agrees that an effort should be made towards UTF-8 default, though? I'm willing to contribute some of my time to fixing these bugs, but I don't think I can fix *all* of this by myself. I guess wc(1) is as good a start as any, but I'd first like to talk to whoever is the maintainer for that bit of code, as I've never done any work in base before (only in ports). _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list https://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-current To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-current-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
