To whom may concerned:
The past week is GSoC midterm. I first made the new nvi runnable, then
tested and fixed the multibyte support part, ported it back to
The biggest challenge was the db/line cache support. The db code of
nvi-1.8x is wrong, incomplete, +memory leak. Now they should be stable
enough and can handle multibyte lines.
I plan to do more testing this week, and create a branch with file
encoding detection. Since nvi never changes the encoding of the
original file, any detection is safe, and I just need one suitable for
FreeBSD (UTF-16 BOM, UTF-8, locale).
