Hi there! I'm new to the forum. I'm looking for a way to get printw() to
print extended ascii characters onto the screen. I tried that... but I see
question marks ore blanks... maybe there is a function in the library to set
the console so that it'll print extened ascii char too.

You have to setup your locale (environment variables) and the application
has to call setlocale().  ncurses' test programs do that, for example.
