I changed my locale from C to en_US.utf8. All my applications which I

Is there a way to tell screen that my locale has changed without a


:utf8 on on

do what you want?


utf8 [on|off [on|off]]

Change the encoding used in the current window. If utf8 is enabled,
the strings sent to the window will be UTF-8 encoded and vice versa.
Omitting the parameter toggles the setting. If a second parameter is
given, the display's encoding is also changed (this should rather be
done with screen's "-U" option).  See also "defutf8", which changes the
default setting of a new window.
