Updated coreutils Shift_JIS packages that add one enhancement are now availablefor Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.

The coreutils packages contain the GNU Core Utilities and represent acombination of the previously used GNU fileutils, sh-utils, and textutilspackages. Shift JIS (SJIS) is a character encoding for the Japanese language.The coreutils Shift_JIS packages provide coreutils support for SJIS.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#1146792)All users requiring SJIS encoding support for coreutils should install theseupdated packages, which add this enhancement.
