I want to display Japanese characters with a C program. Is it impossible? Most webpage links redirect to C# or C++. I tried UTF-8 encoding and the ja_JP locale but it printed funky results, different than the ANSII encoding. If I knew the format for how to input the Unicode hex or the decimal, would that work or would there still be an issue with the display? Is there a format for that? Eventually I am trying to add it to a big project I am working on where specifics matter, but I can play with that then. I just want to know if it's possible and if so then the general way to do it.
