unicode (utf8 actually) characters not handled correctly

Reported by: Arkadiusz Miskiewicz Owned by: thommey
Priority: blocker Milestone: 1.8.0
Component: Core Version: 1.8.0 CVS
Keywords: utf unicode Cc:


My setup:

eggdrop 1.6.17
tcl 8.5a6
Linux 2.6 with latest version of libraries and all stuff
freenode network
irssi client

Testing is simple, tcl script that echoes data back to channel:
bind pub - "utf" pub_proc
proc pub_proc { nick idx handle channel szoveg } {

putmsg $channel "$szoveg"


Now on original 1.6.17 when entering utf8 characters this happens:
21:39 < arekm8> utf ó&#261;&#322;&#324;&#347;
21:39 < utftest> &#65533;EBD[
(some crap is echoed)

After patching src/tcl.c utf_convert() with:

  • byteptr = (char *) Tcl_GetByteArrayFromObj(objv[i], &len);

+ byteptr = (char *) Tcl_GetStringFromObj(objv[i], &len);

I get:
21:57 < arekm8> utf ó&#261;&#322;&#324;&#347;
21:57 < utftest> ó&#261;&#322;&#324;&#347;

It works - proper characters are echoed back.

No idea why ByteArray? is used in utf_convert() so I'm not sure if the fix is
correct. Is it?

putlog may handle utf-8 separately and need additional changes
