I am trying to read a file which have japanese contents and display it by

but broken character was displayed.

It's displayed well by printf() or cat command.

So I re-installed curses library from version 5.7 to version 5.3.

Then printw() of curses library 5.3 displayed it well.( but 5.4 didn't
display well )

Did you link with ncursesw, or ncurses library?

What should I do on 5.7 in order to display japanese character?

I followed steps as below in my c program.

1.setlocale() // set shiftjis


3.fopen() //open file

4.fgets() //read into buffer form file

5.printw() //display the contents of the buffer

Following is my current environment.

-emulator : putty

PuTTY has settings for translations (which are you using?)

It would help to have some sample data, to test with.
