nvi-1.81.6: message catalog not configured correctly
|Reported by:||geekosaur||Owned by:||toby@…|
On startup, nex/nvi in a default OSX Terminal environment will print
./en_US.UTF-8: No such file or directory
This involves two bugs: (1) "set msgcat" defaults to "./" instead of "/opt/local/share/nvi/catalog/", which is where its message catalogs live; (2) the default $LANG is en_US.UTF-8, but the catalog installed with nvi is called "english" and lacks symlinks to any usual locale values on OSX.
If I change "set msgcat" and add a symlink from "english" to "en_US.UTF-8" then the error doesn't occur and the message catalog is found and used. I am not sure if this is an OSX-specific problem; I've never seen it on Linux but don't know if it's using what on OSX appears to be its own message catalogs or something more Linux-standard.
nex/nvi functions fine even if the message catalog isn't loaded, but of course will not be properly localized.
