Shift JIS (SJIS) is a character encoding for the Japanese language.The coreutils Shift_JIS packages provide coreutils support for SJIS.The type of this advisory has been updated to Red Hat Enhancement Advisory. Thepackages included in this revised update have not been changed in any way fromthe packages included in the original advisory.This update adds the following enhancement:* Previously, the tr command did not correctly handle the Shift JIS (SJIS)character encoding. As a consequence, when one byte of an SJIS double-bytecharacter was in the ASCII code range, tr incorrectly converted this SJIS byte,which corrupted the SJIS double-byte character. With this update, tr has beenmodified to skip SJIS-encoded characters when dealing with ASCII input, andSJIS-encoded characters are now displayed correctly. (BZ#1147815)Users who require SJIS encoding support with coreutils are advised to upgrade tothese updated packages, which add this enhancement.
