specific encoding?
Authored by: clytie on Aug 29, '04 12:17:32AM

Thanks very much for the hints. :)

I, too, am trying to live between MacOSX's "full Unicode support" and the realities, especially in applications, even those default with OSX.

I'm also very new to CLI, so please excuse dumb questions.

I need to be able to set up Terminal etc. to display Vietnamese, which is Unicode (one of the default Unicode keyboards with the system), language id "vi".

Do I just plug "vi" into your command, or do I need to say it twice? <muddled>

Much appreciation for any help offered <she says earnestly from within a thick fog>

from Clytie

I wish I could help you, but this is way too different from languages I have an experience with. The best way for you would be search on google for your language specific info, keywords "vietnamese locale mac os x". There are always "small" details and I'm pretty sure there are ready recipes made by native guys who know what they are talking about. One hint though, make sure there are directories starting with "vi" in /usr/share/locale on your mac. If not - don't bother, you'll need to find way to install needed locales to your system. On my system there are no such locales. If there are try them all - probably there will be "vi" and "vi_VI" at least.
Sorry, that's all :)
