Going on from this, is there any way to reconfigure the actual shell to be
capable of displaying such double-byte encoded text in say... "pico" or
even when using "more"?
Actually, such a means wouldn't be such a bad idea for a toggle command
between say regular ISO Latin and say... SJIS or ... what was that other
one...? Oh well, you get the idea... any ideas where we can begin with
such a pursuit?
By the way, I tried reconfiguring lynx upon executing it with both -jpn
and -sjis options and still received garble... Is Progsoc's version of
lynx incapable of displaying or would one need to reconfigure their actual
shell in order to get the characters?
