Bug #3448: broken iconv library
http://redmine.ruby-lang.org/issues/3448

Author: Marc-Andre Lafortune
Status: Rejected
Priority: Low
Assignee: 
Category: ext
Target version: 
ruby -v: all


=begin
 Texts longer than ~8160 characters can create problems with iconv on some distributions:
 
   require 'iconv'
   Iconv.conv("iso-8859-1//ignore", "utf-8", "\305\253" + "a"*8159).size #=> 8159
   Iconv.conv("iso-8859-1//ignore", "utf-8", "\305\253" + "a"*8160).size # => Iconv::IllegalSequence: "a"
 
 The code above is from Debian 4 and 5 (on Heroku...), but it works as expected on OS X. As such, it affects Ruby 1.8 and 1.9
 
 A google search reassured me I was not crazy, e.g. my_iconv_open in:
 http://www.opensource.apple.com/source/vim/vim-6/vim/src/mbyte.c
 
 I realize this is somewhat a third party issue, but I'm logging this nevertheless, as a brave soul might bypass the bug in the Ruby library and/or report this to the proper authorities.
