IBM 850 also seems to translate those "high" bytes to 0x3f.

comment Pasting binary data into a Unicode terminal
The problem is that after having provided the binary data, the program accepts normal user input again. This can be tackled by using named pipes, something like cat pipe - | myapp. But since this is meant to be a demonstration for people who do not necessarily have a programming background, I wanted to keep it as simple as possible and just find a way to paste binary data in the terminal.

@Gilles: Bash mentions this method in its man page: "PS1 is set and $- includes i if bash is interactive, allowing a shell script or a startup file to test this state." So I guess it should be accurate.
