A note to let you know ...
The dash interpreter has a minor problem with multi-byte characters ...
.. at least on Cygwin, NOT on Fedora 24.
When the omega symbol is entered, followed by a backspace, the input buffer
is NOT correctly cleared (or so it appears to me).
Executed in Windows Console:
(but similar behaviour when executed using mintty)
64-@@ uname -a
CYGWIN_NT-6.1 Seven 2.7.0(0.306/5/3) x86_64 Cygwin
(but same behaviour on x86)
64-@@ dash # latest package (0.5.8-3)
# enter alt-234 (omega symbol), followed by a backspace
dash: 1: â??: not found
# enter alt-234
$ echo Î© | xxd
00000000: cea9 0a ...
# enter alt-234, followed by a backspace
$ echo | xxd
00000000: ce0a ..
NOTE: this behaviour already existed BEFORE Corinna made her
modification to cygwin1.dll in order to "please" Steven P.
