daily occasional dose of nihilism🌗

I use Git for Windows installer, which comes with some GNU coreutils binaries (ls, head, grep, …). History, auto-completion and sane behaviour in general is handled by clink, so in the standard Windows command line, I can do pretty much anything I could in Linux. Oh, and there’s ConEmu, an awesome emulator.

But every time I install it on a new computer, I have a problem with non-ASCII characters in output of ls, find or any program dealing with file names, really.

The final answer is LC_ALL=C.UTF-8. This could save me some time in the future.
