A. Windows NT/2000 includes full UNICODE support and its possible to configure a CMD.EXE session to output in UNICODE or ANSI (ANSI being the default)
To set this when starting the CMD.EXE session just add:
- /A - Output to files or pipes will be in ANSI
- /U - Output to files or pipes will be in Unicode
would start a session in UNICODE output mode.
