Firstly, I have (prefer-coding-system 'utf-8) in .emacs. In *terminal*

`cat foo' would display garbages, which is what i'm trying to solve.

It does not work in any physical or emulated terminal to see the contents of a file which is not encoded in the terminal's default encoding in the file's proper encoding. Except this contents contains ANSI sequences to switch between character sets or writing directions.

The question is why you want to do such a silly thing in GNU Emacs! You can easily visit the file in some buffer using the correct encoding ... And you can prefer a few coding systems.



Think of XML as Lisp for COBOL programmers.
