thank you for explanations :-)

no thank you,
because i use MacPorts to install all unix tools i need, and i don't know how 
to insert a testing stuff in MacPorts mechanism

on the other hand, if there is a way for bash to not display special characters 
on the interactive line,
i suppose it can be useful to know how to do that in many cases, for example if 
i switch on a new platform, waiting for making special characters to be 
displayed correctly
(Is it correct english enough ?)
