(this time text under quote, didnt know it bothered)
I'm still failing to get zsh working with utf-8, even
with C-UTF-8 as LC_ALL: as specified in my previous message
non-ascii bytes get displayed as <00cxx> which the line editor
does manage properly. But there is still no way to actually see
utf-8 characters displayed, or even their unicode values(ie
it's still a single byte editing mode). If someone manages
to get it working, please post:)
Also I know about the lack of utf-8 support in cygwin for most
of the windows calls(and personally think that the cygwin utf-8
wrapper code patch would be a vast improvement, that is the one
from okisoft that got posted to cygwin's ml long ago, though
I understand some people dont like how it's done). This should
still not be a problem for one to do an "echo ÃÃ<backspace>"
in his term transparently.
(no problematic wide windows calls involved there as far as I know).
