wcmd is a small utility that reads a wide character command line from standard input or a file, then passes it to
, the wide character version of the
function. This makes it possible to pass wide character arguments to a program from an environment that only supports passing 8-bit character arguments.
Personally I use it to pass wide character arguments to AtomicParsley from Perl, to be able to use the full Unicode repertoire. A small snippet of example code is included in the README file.

Ooops, shouldn't have used the
tags there.... looks ugly.
Shouldn't have used the code tags there. Dammit!
