Hi list,

I'm pretty new to perl so I'm not even sure if I'm asking in the right
place, If not, please bear with me and point me to the right direction :)

I'm having a little bit of trouble using Maketext when returning texts with
special characters (á, é ... etc).

At first a warning is generated although the text was returned successfully.

Malformed UTF-8 character (unexpected non-continuation byte 0x72 after start
byte 0xe9) in pattern match (m//) at /...Perl/5.6.1/Locale/Maketext/
line 32, <STDIN> line 3.

Then I tried messing around with the file /etc/sysconfig/i18n and now the
text is not returned anymore... the same warning is issued.

I can't seem to reproduce this behavior on my other server (both of them use
Red Hat enterprise edition), so I am guessing this has something to do with
some type of configuration.  Could you guys share any thoughts on this?

Thanks for your help,

Andrés Felipe Hernández
