    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,
