hi folks. this may seem uber-simple to some of you, but i'm ignorant
regarding this. your help is appreciated.
so, i have this album from Mötley Crüe (that looks right in vim, my
editor for mutt), and i have ripped it to FLAC and put it on my file
server. on the server, however, the directory name doesn't look like
that. well, it does if i pipe ls through more (ls | more). here are
1) ls --> this shows "M?tley_Cr?e" as directory name
2) ls | more --> this looks right, with umlaut over o and u
3) ls M<TAB> --> this shows "M\366tley_Cr\374e" (backslash366 &
backslash374, respectively), using csh as my shell w/set complete and
my question is... why the differences? is there a way to force
consistent behavior across all three scenarios?
thanks in advance.
