File README.SUSE of Package ddd


ddd has problems when presenting UTF-8 strings with non-ascii characters.
Unfortunately, locales in SUSE are set to use UFT-8 encoding by default.

We use a wrapper script to workaround this issue. If you run ddd, the UTF-8
locales will be switched off. To bypass the wrapper use:
ddd -x [parameters for ddd]

If you think that warning is annoying, you can turn it off by executing

    $ touch ~/.ddd/suse_no_utf8_warning

in a shell.
