Hello,

is it posible to add characters from range #127-#255 support to gdb and is
it in your plans (i think it must be not very dificult)? I mean that these
characters can be used in program constructing identifiers (for example
variable names)(i have extended Free Pascal compiler to support this)(now
gdb understands these characters and did not crashes, bud values of such
variables can not be watched because gdb tells that illegal character is
noticed) and also file names (now you can even input file name with such
characters because gdb console does not accept this, though such file can be
loaded and debugged in other way (for example using libgdb interface)). I
think it is important feature for people using other than english language.
