DESCRIPTION

tickit_term_set_utf8() controls whether terminal input is processed according to UTF-8 rules, or legacy 8-bit single byte rules. If this function is not called explicitly, it will be detected automatically by inspecting locale variables.

tickit_term_get_utf8() returns the current value for UTF-8 support as TICKIT_YES or TICKIT_NO, or TICKIT_MAYBE if the value is not yet known and has not been explicitly set.

RETURN VALUE

tickit_term_set_utf8() returns no value. tickit_term_get_utf8() returns a TickitMaybeBool tri-state boolean value.
