allowed-nickchars for baltic character sets

Post by moses » Tue Aug 11, 2020 6:10 pm

Hello,

I am not sure if this is a bug or just something that is not supported (but perhaps could be)?

I cannot seem to use any baltic specific character, I am trying with latin-utf8 but perhaps a different value is needed? For example the following characters are allowed in the nickname: Č芚Žž but these are not āĀĒēĢģĪīĶķŪū and result in the following error "Nickname is unavailable: Illegal characters".

Is there a different value that needs to be used on this setting in order to accept the baltic language characters?

Thank you,
Moses

With slovak-utf8 peharps ?
Have a look @ https://www.unrealircd.org/docs/Nick_Character_Sets and check which are better for you.

Looks like what is needed is latin1-extended. Slovak has some of the characters but not all, so it wouldn't really be optimal to use. I will try to put together a list and a PR.

You can add multiple:

Code: Select all

set { allowed-nickchars { latin1-utf8; slovak-utf8; czech-utf8; }; };
(just an example, choose the sets you need)

Thanks. Unfortunately I do not think any set of these combinations will make support for Latvian, Lithuanian, etc.
