The bin/compare CGI script have worked fine for us in CairoRelease with koi8-r locale. In Dakar it recodes cyrillic as it is were latin in such a way:
<p> &#xE2;&#xD5;&#xC4;&#xC5;&#xCD; &#xD3;&#xDE;&#xC9;&#xD4;&#xC1;&#xD4;&#xD8;, &#xD3;&#xC5;&#xC7;&#xCF;&#xC4;&#xCE;&#xD1; 

I have had put the following line to server config to avoid users irritation
RedirectMatch ^/(.*/bin)/compare/(.*)$ /$1/rdiffword/$2
but it remains in Support and Sandbox and You still can try to look for the Cyrillic in script output:;rev2=56

The settings are described in Item3679

What bin/compare script? TWiki doesn't have a bin/compare script. Or did you mean rdiff?


No, some of our users found this script remained from some previous installation

to be more convenient then bin/rdiff and sometimes even than bin/rdiffword. (rdiffword tends to hang up in rare cases) Script still work fine for English, but i18N appears to be broken now.

I have changed the priority to low as this script is not supported now

Do you probably mean the TWiki:Plugins.CompareRevisionsAddOn which has a bin/compare?

-- TWiki:Main.OliverKrueger - 20 Jul 2007

Oh, Yes, of course! It was fully compatible with koi8-r couple of years ago.

-- TWiki:Main.SergejZnamenskij - 20 Jul 2007

now there's an addon who's functionality should have been merged into the core years ago. I don't know why no-one's done so - but anyone that is interested, please think about doing so.

especially as when i wronte rdiff, i made it kind of pluggable!
