Re: How to display Arabic characters

 
if you're using Arabic Windows, there should be no issue viewing and writing in Arabic characters. If you're not using Arabic Windows, only utf-8 text can be seen.

Even though you're in an Arabic Windows environment, the next three conditions should all be set the same:

1. The encoding of the terminal: echo $LANG
2. The encoding of Xshell: This can be verified through Xshell's toolbar
3. The encoding of your documents
