Gnus/5.110007 (No Gnus v0.7) Emacs/23.0.50 (gnu/linux)
Hi (Handa-san? :-),
Is it possible to implement the `chinese-gbk' coding system (and
also the charset) to the EMACS_22_BASE branch (i.e., Emacs 22.2)?
I heard that some Chinese messages use the gbk charset which is
a superset of gb2312. A shar'd sample message is in:
(To extract a message, save a sh script part to a file, do chmod +x,
and execute it.)
Currently Gnus makes gbk be an alias to cp936 if gbk is not
available. However, though I'm ignorant in Chinese, I can
observe it doesn't work like it does in the Emacs Unicode-2.
That is, gbk that is an alias to cp936 in Gnus is no more than
a workaround for preventing the `Unknown charset' error (if
there's no additional means to provide gbk, like ). Maybe to
support gbk becomes indispensable like windows-1252 for Latin-1.
(Another package, named `mule-gbk', is also available but it
requires cns11643.*-5,6,7 fonts, which in the intlfonts package
seem to be incomplete.)
