      The idea is that 'charcode' is set to the encoding of the terminal you are
      using. There is no translation or conversion when sending the text to the
      display. The encoding of what the user types would be the same too.

      If you do a telnet, you use the terminal you started it in, right? That would
      mean the use of "cp932" or "euc_jp" depends on which terminal is being used and
      shouldn't be compile time choice but a runtime one.

      I can change this, but it will be work. I first need to know if this is
      really the right solution.

      By the way, don't the "euc-kr" and "euc-tw" have similar problems?
