Subject [jira] Created: (STDCXX-277) Locale stage 2 test failure
Date Fri, 18 Aug 2006 16:02:13 GMT
Locale stage 2 test failure

                 Key: STDCXX-277
             Project: C++ Standard Library
          Issue Type: Bug
          Components: Utilities
         Environment: Multiple, including Linux + gcc 3.2.3
            Reporter: Andrew Black
         Attachments:, out.1

To test the locales, the script is used, residing in the etc/config subdirectory
of the source directory.

During this process, the source file in the etc/nls subdirectory is first transformed into
a locale database using the localedef utility, then is converted back to a source file using
the locale utility.  This process is repeated twice more, with each following stage relying
on the source file from the previous itteration.  The test then concludes by checking that
the source files produced in the second and third stage are identical.

On some platforms, including my local box, this process fails for most locales when the localedef
utility in the second stage is unable to process the output of the source file generated by
the locale utility in the first stage of the process.  Output from running the
(wrapper) script with the '-d' flag on my box is attached as  The
failure message from the localedef utility in this case is as follows:
Error 399: decimal value in the range [0, 255) expected: \d383

When I search for the string '\d383' in the source file being parsed (attached as out.1),
I find it in the LC_COLLATE section.  It appears to me that either the output from the locale
utility doesn't use the correct range, or that the valid range for the parser in localedef
is incorrect.
