Re: Should glibc provide a builtin C.UTF-8 locale?

In OS X, the C locale uses UTF-8 but things are seriously confused: nl_langinfo(CODESET) returns "US-ASCII" and MB_CUR_MAX is 1, among other things. See:

Perhaps an OS X expert can chime in, as I don't really understand what it's trying to do in this area.
