Visual COBOL and UTF-8 under Unix

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 02 February 2012]


I have a package configured in RM/COBOL to allow the user enter data in utf-8 languages (chinese, russian, etc). Mostly I use an external win dialog to accomplish it.

I am meaning to work with it using Visual COBOL, but I found that, after showing the utf-8 string in a given line, characters printed in the same line but in higher columns are misplaced.

Any suggestion to deal with this?

Thank you.
