iconv and OpenBSD
I'm having some problems with utf-8 on OpenBSD ...
More specifically, iconv does't seem to work very well. My WM (PekWM) sets the Window title to <INVALID> whenever it contains a non-ascii character (This includes all GIMP windows and many webpages have UTF-8 <title>'s as well), some investigation discovered that PekWM uses iconv() for character translation.
A quick test with
% iconv -t UTF-8 file where file is a file with non-ascii characters seems to confirm that iconv doesn't work at all on OpenBSD ... Or at least not with utf-8.
% iconv -l displays UTF-8 as a supported character set, so it should work. (tm)
(Also having problems with UTF-8 with mutt, may be related ... Some other apps like Vim and Xterm work fine though).
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
