I'm trying to customize my Bash prompt with Unicode characters and I'm having a bit of trouble. If I try to include a Unicode character like this:
$ echo ☢ | hexdump -C 00000000 e2 98 a2 0a |....| 00000004 $ PS1="\xe2\x98\xa2\x0a"
I see my prompt appears like this:
...rather than showing the ☢ character. What am I doing wrong?
