Is there a way to make joe work in raw 8-bit mode?
If not I would very much like to have it! I want to
be able to use Joe (instead of Vi) even if LC_CTYPE="C"
1) The editor Vi works with 8-bit chars even if
there are only LC_CTYPE="C" and such. Emacs and Joe and
others do not. It does NOT help running Joe with -asis option.
2) On one Linux Debian machine I use there are only UTF-8
locales installed and I have headaches efter failing to find
info on that subject and I have got enough.
3) My mac iBook running 10.4 it refuses to accept LANG and
4) On my Mac server/workstation running 10.5 it seems to
accept the LANG assignment but Joe (and Emacs) still freaks
out on 8-bit chars above 127.
I really want to use Joe also on all these machines!
> locale -a | grep ^sv
> export LANG="sv_SE.ISO8859-1"
Joe freaks out on ÅÄÖ!
This is working for me:
If I have a utf-8 terminal and an 8859-1 file, JOE transcodes for the terminal.
If I have an 8859-1 terminal, then -asis allows the file to be viewed even if LC_ALL is C.
Try messing with ^T E: enter 8859-1
