Description inoue 1999-04-05 02:19:23 UTC
When we Japanese write some Japanese text in spec file like
this: Summary(ja): xxxxxxxx, rpm warns this file as binary
and exits if we use JIS kanji code for this text.
In Japan, commonly used kanji code for Linux is EUC-JP and
no problem occurs when we use EUC-JP in spec file, but
someone want to use JIS kanji code because JIS (ISO-2022-JP)
is also used widely, especially in mail, and EUC-JP itself
is based on JIS.
So please omit checking out ESC (0x1b) at this point:
