ZCatalog can already be used easily to catalog
material in one non-english language
(condition: one byte per character encoding)
by using the locale support.
This breaks down, however, when a single catalog should index
objects in different (non-english) languages.

The patch at


lets ZCatalog treat each character with code between 192 and 254
(inclusive) as letters, provided "Splitter.c" is compiled with
This is adequate for ISO-Latin1, because all characters in
the range of 192 and 254 are letters (though for different
Latin-1 languages) with the exception of 215, 216 and 247.
