#8797 closed bug (no change required)

gawk build does not handle some special characters

Reported by: cian Owned by: nobody
Priority: normal Milestone: R1
Component: Applications/Command Line Tools Version: R1/Development
Keywords: Cc:
Blocked By: Blocking:
Has a Patch: no Platform: All


The VLC configure script contains the Copyright symbol (©) which is passed in to gawk. It is spat out as an unrecognised character. Removing the symbol allows the gawk command to complete and the rest of the configure script to complete also (notwithstanding an earlier error which I'm also investigating)

Running hrev44398 but issue has been present for quite some time.

I did not hit this problem when doing a recipe for VLC 0.8.6i, but I think you reported this while working on a newer version, do you remember which one? Does it still happen in current VLC version? Can someone do a simpler test case?

I think this was fixed when gawk was externalized and updated to a newer version.

Resolution: no change required
Status: newclosed

Gawk was outsourced and updated to a newer version; if this issue persists please report it at HaikuPorts.

I think it is "fixed" in gawk by disabling wide-char support:

sed -i '/.*HAVE_WCTYPE_H.*/c\#undef HAVE_WCTYPE_H' config.h

The bug might actually be still with us and in Haiku, not gawk.

Ah. In that case, this was fixed in hrev47966, correct? Bash was having the same issue before that commit.
