Does someone know how to change RXVT so it wil display the PC8 characters . I know its done by NCURSES but I thing that to big . I readed from some articals that it's quit hard to do . I know that it can be done in console mode by sending a escape code 'ESC ( U' . Knows someone how to do it in RXVT . Or is it posseble in ATERM ? .

The problem you see is that what I want to get . MP use ncurses and Bash not allows ncurses so all the extended char are mapped to the ISO standard .

To get it working , without ncurses , We need to know a way to get a other code page (character map) working in rxvt .

As far I read in all kind of articals it's not compateble with a uni code .
They talk all about setting the TERM to vt100 (they are in usr/share/terminfo/v/)
but I do not know how to use it . It sames to be a ANSI X3.64 norm .
Will go on reading . Greatings Menno .

I just discovered this thread.
I was puzzling over this same problem, and discussed it in another thread.
I didn't know it is a codepage problem.

I can't find my original post ...it has disappeared, but GuestToo and Alienx
have solved it:

There is a Debian packet 'xfonts-terminus-dos-4.12-2_all.deb' in which are a lot of old dos fonts . Also the 850 fonts . (You can see it with TKzip) . I picked out of it the 'ter-uXXX_ibm850.pcf.gz' XXX is for size(12,14,16,20) and font (b=bold , n=normal) . There is also a font.alias look at it and copy the one's you need to the font.alias in /usr/X11R6/lib/font/misc/font.alias . Then you have to add the files into font.dir . X11 seems to know how to handle a *.pcf.gz there are a lot smaller then the *.pcf. If done this all you have to restart X11 (go to console and say xwin) . You can change those long alias names into some beter names. But beaware of that the rigth side of file.alias and file.dir for a given alias are the same !
Start a rxvt and start a other one as 'rxvt -fn aliasnameofibm850-size' .
If it says 'cann't load font' then there is a mismatch between file.alias and file.dir OR you have forgotten to adjust the filenumber at the beginning of file.dir .
Hopefully somebody understands my bad english , but it works .

I saw that , what Barry ask for , all the graphic character or NOT in 850 but you have to use 860 that is the original PC8 code as far I know .
