I have build a deb-package for picprog 1.8[*]. However, when I run lintian,
I get this error:
| pts/3 jan ~/deb$ lintian picprog_1.8-1_i386.changes
| W: picprog: manpage-has-errors-from-man usr/share/man/man1/picprog.1.gz 44: warning: can't find numbered character 195
| pts/3 jan ~/deb$
I have found that when I set LANG to C and run 'man picprog.1' I indeed get a
| pts/3 jan ~/deb$ man -P cat -l picprog-1.8/picprog.1
| Reformatting picprog.1, please wait...
| picprog-1.8/picprog.1:44: warning: can't find numbered character 195
| picprog-1.8/picprog.1:44: warning: can't find numbered character 164
| PICPROG(1) PICPROG(1)
In this manpage the character "ä" is used twice. When I change those ä's with a
"a" the warnings disappear.
My question :
How should I handle this? I can modify picprog.1, but the ä is used in the name
of the programmer of picprog (Jaakko Hyvätti) so I don't know if that is really
a good idea?
