For the clipboard, this would be trivial to achieve; I had recently made

I'm having an issue with getclip and pasting utf-8 strings (like
"PONIEDZIAÅEK" for example). Using mintty and right clicking I get
exactly what's in the clipboard. If I call getclip from the command
line, I get PONIEDZIA?EK. My LANG is set to en_CA.UTF-8.
Yep, getclip (and putclip) don't have Unicode support (yet?), so
characters outside your system's ANSI codepage end up as question
The special /dev/clipboard device does have Unicode support though, so
you could just use 'cat /dev/clipboard' instead of getclip.
It would be nice if putclip/getclip COULD speak Unicode. PTC. Indeed,
PDS. (Ditto mkshortcut, lpr, readshortcut...)
