>From the tr manpage: c-c For non-octal range endpoints represents the range of characters between the range endpoints, inclusive, in ascending order, as defined by the collation sequence. Note that 8859-1 has uppercase and lowercase accented characters, which collate alongside the unaccented characters. /usr/src/share/colldef/la_LN.ISO8859-1.src holds the collation sequence for en_US.ISO_8859-1. There are two lowercase y, but three uppercase Y's. This means that your ranges are different sizes, and Z maps to <y:>, which happens to be 0xff in the 8859-1 charset. > It must be something too obvious but I don't see it at the moment. > > I found that it depends on my special environment settings. > A different user doesn't have this problem. -- Dan Nelson [EMAIL PROTECTED] _______________________________________________ [EMAIL PROTECTED] mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "[EMAIL PROTECTED]"
