The same problem exist when I use 8bit characters in the tag line- all
these chars are stripped and looks like blank spaces. I'm absolutely
sure, that there is no problem with setlocale, because (after localedef
blah, blah.. and export LANG=lt_LT) I get properly formatted time in
Lithuanian standard on a tag line (it looks like '(F0)estadienis, 1998
m. vasario 28d.' F0 is code of character, which really looks like blank
line). Sending text pages with lithuanian characters is OK. I don't
believe, that there is problem with .pcf font, because I tried several
'self made' (converted with bdftopcf util) fonts and other standard
fonts, included with distribution (they also have 8bit characters). All
times I get the same result. I'm not experienced programming c++, so
analyzing the program text is to hard for me. Please help.
I use HylaFAX 4.0pl2 on Linux 2.0 (RedHat 5.0 distribution) and gcc
