General Linux question about file & directory names
I've seen several Linux programmes (mostly written in C or C++) which offer multi-language support through the use of UTF-8. Therefore dialog messages etc can be displayed in any supported language. However, there often seems to be an inbuilt assumption that file system names (i.e. files and folders) will only ever use the standard English character set. I just wondered if there's an actual 'rule' about this? Can people in Germany or Greece or Japan use file and folder names with non-English characters?
