The Octave CLI uses the system code page on Windows. On supported systems, it should use UTF-8 instead (e.g. for sym or international character support in general).
The GUI command window correctly uses UTF-8 on supported systems. This is done in "libgui\qterminal\libqterminal\win32\QWinTerminalImpl.cpp" @ around line 387.
This code is not executed in CLI mode and should be moved to a better position. Where would that be?
Any hints would be appreciated.
