8.133 --multibyte_chars, --no_multibyte_chars

Enables and disables processing for multibyte character sequences in comments, string literals, and character constants.

Default

--multibyte_chars is the default, but the option only has an effect in locales that use multibyte characters.

Usage

Multibyte encodings are used for character sets such as the Japanese Shift-Japanese Industrial Standard (Shift-JIS).

Note:

If the source file encoding is UTF-8 or UTF-16, and the file starts with a byte order mark then the compiler ignores the --locale and --[no_]multibyte_chars options and interprets the file as UTF-8 or UTF-16.
