Updated sed Shift_JIS packages that add one enhancement are now available forRed Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
Sed (for Stream EDitor) is a stream editor, sometimes also called a batch(non-interactive) editor, that takes text as input, performs an operation or aset of operations on the text, and outputs the modified text. The operationsthat sed performs, such as substitutions, deletions, or insertions, can bespecified in a script file or from the command line. Shift JIS (SJIS) is acharacter encoding for the Japanese language. The sed Shift_JIS packages providesed support for SJIS.This update adds the following enhancement:* Previously, the sed utility did not correctly handle reading a multibytecharacter that could not be converted with the “ja_JP.SJIS” locale. As aconsequence, incomplete multibyte character input could cause the sed command toenter an infinite loop. The problem did not influence the UTF-8 characterencoding, but a fix was needed for SJIS. With this update, an upstream fix hasbeen backported for this bug, and the sed command no longer loops infinitely inthis situation. (BZ#1153888)Users who require SJIS encoding support with sed functions are advised toupgrade to these updated packages, which add this enhancement.
