Multibyte Encoding Support in Nvi
by Zhihao Yuan for FreeBSD
Nvi is a BSD-licensed re-implementation of the original vi editor. While most of the userland tools in the FreeBSD base system support multibyte encodings , there is no nvi fork comes with sufficient multibyte encoding (both Unicode and non-Unicode) support so far. My GSoC2011 proposal aims to add the complete iconv-based multibyte encoding support to nvi.
