It may also be useful if mintty had some character hex value box
display mode switch to display the actual codes at each visual
position, or maybe a font used to display the character hex value in
a box, often used in fonts as glyphs for non-printing control
characters and those in the Private Use Area, in which case that could
perhaps be added to the mintty package for use in testing.
I have been searching for such a font with no success so far.
Hmm, ... it might be a nice feature.
Displaying the character set codes passed to the console.
I'm preparing such an option. However, I plan to indicate the actual Unicode characters effective on the cursor position (i.e. not the multi-byte encoded characters).
Character information display is available in the current repository version.
