src/dist/nvi/common [netbsd-6]: conv.c
Pull up following revision(s) (requested by christos in ticket #798):
dist/nvi/common/conv.c: revision 1.7
It is ridiculous to truncate files on character conversions without
warning and a chance for recovery. This patch sets the handler to
copy the character, clear the error and proceed instead of bailing
- unset LANG
- Create a file that has ~1000 lines. Put a single bad character
- '\344' in it, around 2/3rds of the file down. Save it.
- export LANG=en_US.UTF-8
- edit the file. Notice there is no error for input conversion,
since nvi reads the file opportunistically.
- :w Boom, the file is truncated.
Alternatively, you can put that character in the first line of the file,
and watch the fireworks. If you like to restore the previous behavior
compile with -DERROR_ON_CONVERT
XXX: Pullup to 6, 5 etc.
