Hello, While writing a script that deals with files named using an incorrect encoding (eg. latin1 on a utf8 system), I came across a strange zsh feature: [waba@waba]~ % zsh -f waba% locale LANG=POSIX LC_CTYPE=fr_BE.utf8 LC_NUMERIC=POSIX LC_TIME=POSIX LC_COLLATE=fr_BE.utf8 LC_MESSAGES=POSIX LC_ALL= waba% touch $( echo /tmp/Ãbc |iconv -tlatin1 ) waba% echo /tmp/Ãb? /tmp/ïbc IOW, I create a file named "Ãbc" (a-grave b c) using latin1 encoding on my utf8 system, but it still matches as utf8 during globbing. Expected behavior: the first character of that filename is not valid utf8 and should not match anything except itself. I expected the shell to return "zsh: no matches found: /tmp/Ãb?". So, 1) Is there a list of the encodings tried by ZSH ? latin1/iso-8859-1 is not mentioned anywhere in my configuration... 2) Can this feature be disabled at all ? I'm sure that it can be useful at the prompt, but it's a nuisance inside my script. TIA, -Thomas.
