SubjectRegarding bash and 8th bit
Hello Jeff,
Hearing that bash strips the eighth bit surprised me, because I think I
remember using it with kterm (kanji-term) and two-byte characters. I
could be wrong though.
Anyway, I think the trick is modifying the inputrc file. Oh yes, here
we go. This is from Debian's /etc/inputrc:

# /etc/inputrc - global inputrc for libreadline
# See readline(3readline) and `info readline' for more information.

# Be 8 bit clean.
set input-meta on
set output-meta on

I think I also heard that libreadline is up to version 4, but I only
have version 2. I think the next bash will have version 4.

all the best,
