- Subject: cyrillic console
Currently, the character set in cyrillic console seems to be cp1251,
while in cmd.exe it is cp866. Nothing too wrong with this, except that
cp1251 lacks pseudographic symbols.
I am using cygwin to run tin 1.4 with codepage translation table from
koi8-r to cp1251. So the pseudographics does not survive this translation.
If the codepage is altered from cp866 to cp1251, is that correct that it
is easy to convert instead to koi8-r? Why not make this customizable?
I've tried to build some release of cygwin dll but didn't succeed yet...
well I'll keep trying if it worth it. Perhaps I need to update all
utilities to newest versions?
