[texdoc] Weird behavior of `texdoc'

but the underlying texlua interpreter.
One for dev-luatex at ntg.nl, perhaps? Karl, Manuel?
I'm not sure yet.
I reduced the input to a one-line file, call it /tmp/test.txt:
a â b
And then running
env LANG=en_US.UTF-8 texlua /tmp/test.lua
with your test.lua, which calls less, gives the bad <xx> result.
But if I change test.lua to the one line
os.execute('cat "/tmp/test.txt"') -- instead of less
the output is correct for me (given a UTF-8 terminal font, of course).
Also, if it was a generic problem, every UTF-8 character would be
rendered incorrectly for everyone. But we've never received a single
report before this. It seems ... unlikely.
I don't suppose it could be about that particular UTF-8 char? --karl
