What is a "non-standard character"? ISO 10646 is quite comprehensive. - Bug notices without examples aren't likely to cause a stir.

We are converting from one Linux system to another Linux system.

The old system has awk version 3.1.3 and the new version has awk 4.0.2.


In the version 3.1.3, text records with non-standard characters, the records are processed with no problem by awk.

In the version 4.0.2, text records with non-standard characters are ignored and not processed.


Is there a way to fix this issue, or to be able to ignore non-standard characters with this newer version of awk?  Or is there a new version than 4.0.2 that will resolve this issue?


Thank you.
