Glibc 2.39 is released and contains that patch :)

The patch just landed on glibc's git :) https://sourceware.org/git/?p=glibc.git;a=commit;h=dfe8c445883a50a55564b02b6957257bfc510db4

That's great!

> do you have tooling to update translit.def automatically from glibc

I don't have such ready-made tooling; I just use some ad-hoc shell scripts for this purpose.
You have nothing to do; I will act when your patch has been committed into glibc.

Hi Bruno,

Do you want me to prepare a patch corresponding to the one I sent to glibc, or do you have tooling to update translit.def automatically from glibc and I have nothing to do (apart from hoping they'll like my patch)?

Hello,

This took more time than expected, but I submitted a patch to glibc. FYI, it is at https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=30649

Hope this helps!
Colin

Hi Bruno,

Thanks for the pointer! I'll try and do that in the next days.

Have a nice week-end,
Colin

This is a good suggestion.

glibc's iconv would need the same feature.

I would suggest that you report this as a feature request for glibc, at https://sourceware.org/bugzilla/ . There, most of these transliterations will probably go into the file glibc/localedata/locales/translit_neutral. Only a few transliterations are language specific, I would expect.

When glibc has adopted this feature, I'll gladly pull the additions to glibc/localedata/locales/translit_neutral into libiconv.

Hello,

Would you be interested in transliterating emojis?

Attached is a minimal patch I did to check I could figure it out. If you're willing to implement it, I can complete the list.

Example:

$ echo "Hello GNU! ????" | /usr/local/bin/iconv -f UTF-8 -t ISO-8859-1//TRANSLIT
Hello GNU! ;-)

Thanks for your work,

Colin
