608problems with hebrew utf-8
- Feb 3, 2002I have been attempting to use gvim 6.0 on Windows to type mixed Hebrew
and English text and not having great success. After setting the
encoding=utf8; the Hebrew keymap and righttoleft mode (set rl), I can
type in logical order and get the Hebrew. Then leaving right to left
mode (set norl), the Hebrew remains in the correct direction. However,
if I put the cursor on each Hebrew letter, the text will reverse.
Actually, each character that the cursor is placed on displays the
character in the same position in the reverse order (e.g., if in logical
text order a line consists of aleph bet gimel putting the curser on the
gimel will cause it to display aleph in that position. ^L will restore
it. If one then attempts to insert latin characters, the hebrew becomes
I am trying to write Perl scripts that will deal with modifying Hebrew
text and will need to mix English (actually Perl code) with the Hebrew.
Are there known bugs and have any been fixed? Is there a more recently
patched binary for the Windows Gvim?
