[snip - problem under FreeBSD with vile-9.7 when iconv is not enabled]

Revisiting this - as exactly as I can with my 6.0 FreeBSD, I'm still
not seeing a problem.  I set the locale the same, and am indeed linking
to iconv (different versions of course):

../bin/vile: => /usr/local/lib/ (0x28122000) => /lib/ (0x2820f000) => /usr/local/lib/perl5/5.8.7/mach/CORE/ 
(0x2824e0> => /lib/ (0x28350000) => /lib/ (0x28366000) => /lib/ (0x2837e000) => /usr/lib/ (0x2838a000) => /lib/ (0x283af000)

I didn't see anything useful in my log-comments for eightbit.c, but
as I mentioned, I seem to recall fixing during development some issue
that would cause vile to ignore input.  That's a thousand lines of
code though (I don't recall whether it was sign-extension or checking
return-values from iconv).

It may very well be a) something specific to 8-current or b) a side-
effect of some other port which I have installed.  The way in which
port dependencies interact is pretty much impossible to analyze.  And
since I only have 8-current installed I can't evaluate it any better.

OBTW the problem disappears for me too when I link against iconv.  I

thanks - I didn't pick out that detail (was thinking that it was _with_ iconv). I'll look closer at


...which would only be vile + ctype

only see a problem w/o iconv but with i18n support.  It also works
when I turn off both iconv and i18n support, which is the configuration
I'm currently using.

Thanks for pursuing this.

no problem
