Viewing a file containing tab (or other control characters) using more -U
with no locale setting shows ^I in reverse video in an xterm|vt220. Setting
LC_CTYPE to iso_8859_1 shows the same. Setting LC_CTYPE to the new values in
/usr/share/locale such as en_GB.ISO8859-1 shows a tab wide block in reverse
- Create a file foobar containing a tab
- if you haven't got iso_8859_1, from Manuel's notes:
    Grab the 'locale.tgz' file from
    and extract it from '/'. Then set LC_CTYPE to iso_8859_1, it should work.
- env LC_CTYPE= more -U filename
- env LC_CTYPE=iso_8859_1 more -U filename
- env LC_CTYPE=en_GB.ISO8859-1 more -U filename
Don't know - vague recollection that iso_8859_1 was not created using
mklocale, but another locale compiler..
