Hi Everyone

I searched the archives for "emoji" and didn't come up with anything...

If I use the ctrl-shift-u method of input. I can type this:


and I can get a little computer displayed.

If I use this:

echo 🖥

It echos fine to my terminal

This little test snippet compiled with:

gcc unicode.c -o unicode  -lncursesw

#include <ncursesw/ncurses.h>

#include <locale.h>

int main(){

initscr() ;
addstr("噖") ;
move(1,10) ;
addstr("🖳") ;
char a =  getch() ;
endwin() ;

return 0 ;


Does not display the emoji.

Emoji are composed of more bytes than normal written languages. Is there an upper limit to support with ncurses?

If not, is there a way to get this to work ? I want to write a program that will run at large font and will have many emoji pictures. When a disabled child clicks on them, the program will speak for them.

Thanks for reading-Patrick
