PPA description

Unzip package, which correctly prints/shows non-latin characters in file names.
difference between the original unzip package is just one line:
file extract.c, line 2599. isprint was replaced by iswprint.

You can do it yourself by:

(/home/user) $: apt-cache source unzip
(/home/user) $: cd unzip-6.0
(/home/user) $: gedit extract.c

go to line 2599..

there will be:

if (!isprint(*r)) {

You have to replace it to:

if(!iswprint(*r)) {

(we replaced function isprint by iswprint).

And now do:

(/home/user) $: cp unix/Makefile ./
(/home/user) $: make generic
(/home/user) $: sudo make install

it will renew the unzip package.
