Attachments: RIS file that causes encoding problems to ris2xml

RIS file that causes encoding problems to ris2xml

Take the attached RIS file


and convert it to XML with

ris2xml 275415.ris

where ris2xml is from the current version 4.12 of bibutils in Gentoo.

You will see that non-ASCII characters (like á) look different in the XML (like AA).

This bug has long been corrected to newer, 5.x versions (at least since 5.6, probably earlier).


Upgrade to 5.x (but there is no 5.x version in Gentoo yet...).
