I usually use tcsh so I'll need the equivalent features for it, but this
is a nice work-around for me. The tcsh man page says
Unknown characters (i.e. those that are neither printable
nor control characters) are printed in the format \nnn.
If the tty is not in 8 bit mode, other 8 bit characters
are printed by converting them to ASCII and using standout
mode. The shell never changes the 7/8 bit mode of the tty
and tracks user-initiated changes of 7/8 bit mode. NLS
users (or, for that matter, those who want to use a meta
key) may need to explicitly set the tty in 8 bit mode
through the appropriate stty(1) command in, e.g., the
So I tried:
$ stty -parenb -istrip cs8
