Darwin DeoGloria 13.3.0 Darwin Kernel Version 13.3.0: Tue Jun 3 21:27:35 PDT 2014; root:xnu-2422.110.17~1/RELEASE_X86_64 x86_64
Fresh user account. Terminal.app and iTerm2 with UTF-8 set. Accented characters work fine in all applications ("å,ä,ö,é"). But some (wide?) unicode chars is not showing in some command line applications. I first discovered it in weechat, but in the bash shell it works fine.
In stock Mavericks bash:
DeoGloria:~ test$ echo -e "\xE2\x9A\x91" ⚑
Copying and pasting the flag char with mouse.
DeoGloria:~ test$ ⚑ -bash: ⚑: command not found
bash is working as expected. Starting default zsh, no config done
DeoGloria:~ test$ zsh DeoGloria:~ test$ echo -e "\xE2\x9A\x91" ⚑
Showing alright. But not when I paste:
DeoGloria% <2691> zsh: command not found: \u2691
DeoGloria% locale LANG="sv_SE.UTF-8" LC_COLLATE="sv_SE.UTF-8" LC_CTYPE="sv_SE.UTF-8" LC_MESSAGES="sv_SE.UTF-8" LC_MONETARY="sv_SE.UTF-8" LC_NUMERIC="sv_SE.UTF-8" LC_TIME="sv_SE.UTF-8" LC_ALL=
Starting emacs or vi from zsh and pasting "⚑" works fine. It doesn't work in nano. I get an non-visual character.
I suspected some issues with ncurses, but bash, zsh, nano, emacs are all linked with
/usr/lib/libncurses.5.4.dylib (compatibility version 5.4.0, current version 5.4.0)
I'm out of ideas. Any pointers?
