Description Stanislav Brabec 2019-07-23 18:35:32 UTC
While trying to use json_pp on openSUSE Tumbleweed, I got all accented characterd mangled. The tool erroneously hardcodes input encoding to ISO-8859-1 independently on locale.

How to reproduce:
sbrabec> echo '["é"]' | json_pp
sbrabec> rpm -qf /usr/bin/json_pp 

All locales are properly and consistently set to cs_CZ.UTF-8.

Here is a probably related bug report with a fix:

json_pp <list.json | iconv -f UTF-8 -t ISO-8859-1 >list-pp.json

I'll fix this when we update the perl version in factory. The fix is already in perl master, commit 92050bba215a45f1b1af2343c99c36ab8bd642d7
