That's not a curses function. Look at SVGATextMode.

Change them, or just use them? For the latter, try A_ALTCHARSET (but
you'll have to have a console font set that includes those
characters, e.g. cp850-8x16). For changing them, create a font
yourself or something (I don't know details, but look at the
console-tools package).

Under Linux, you don't normally use direct interrupts and assembly
code when regular system calls are available. :-)
