In the example you appear to set UTF8. Are you sure that's the Windows convention? I thought that was UTF16? IIRC, UTF8 is standard nowadays on Linux...

Also, what does this directive *do* exactly? Set the codepage for all strings? Set it only for a console?

Please feel free to reply in German - my German writing is not so good, but I can read it ok.
