[Octave-bug-tracker] [bug #43099] Missing support for international characters in the GUI console in Windows 7

Follow-up Comment #39, bug #43099 (project octave):
Octave uses the Windows console for its Command Window (on MS Windows). That
is the same console that is used by "cmd.exe".
Unfortunately, its support for the "UTF-8 codepage" 65001 is broken in Windows
versions prior to Windows 10.
The only way to fix this in Octave would be to completely re-design how
Octave handles input/output at the command line (cross-platform). This major
project is on the wish-list. But nobody is working on it at the moment as far
as I know.
