@Shufei Maybe you need to change your locale? See http://www.netbsd.org/docs/misc/index.html#locales
Ta! I set this one in .profile, too, and that finally kept it persistent after logout.
I'm unclear on the difference practically between LANG and LC_ALL?
Anyway, both are set to zh_TW.UTF-8 now. I'll try other programs I had issues with, hopefully to see it cleared up. Yay!
@Shufei It worked, great!
LANG sets the default localization. The different LC_ variables will override specific localizations (number formats, character sorting, etc.) LC_ALL overrides everything. It might be that some old programs only understand LANG.
Oh, I see, it's a suite of variables for localization. I'll check that out.
I don't know why, but some commands / programmes work differently via ssh than on my machine. Well, I'll give a few oldies a go and see if they are happy.
