Luit is a filter that can be run between an arbitrary application and a UTF-8 terminal emulator. It will convert application output from the locale's encoding into UTF-8, and convert terminal input from UTF-8 into the locale's encoding. It is mainly used to support xterm.

Release Notes: This release completes integration of the iconv extension, making the fontenc library unnecessary. It adds several options for showing available encoding data in fontenc (from ".enc" files), iconv, and built-in tables.
Release Notes: Uses updated configure-checks from xterm to make Mac OS X Lion and Mountain Lion ports work. Fixes a regression in the -encoding option. Several other portability/reliability improvements.
Release Notes: Improved portability, making checks with the configure script to distinguish working poll versus select, and working grantpt versus openpty functions. Tested on several releases of AIX, HPUX, IRIX64, Solaris, and Tru64, as well as various Linux distributions, FreeBSD, NetBSD, and OpenBSD.
Release Notes: Portability/configurability improvements, including fixes to accommodate inconsistent locale encoding names across platforms.
Release Notes: This release adds a configure option to use iconv rather than fontenc. For iconv, built-in support is provided for two DEC symbol encoding types. Configure options have been added to support debug-traces and aid in memory-leak checking, as well as providing the verbose command-line option. A few very old bugs have been fixed (such as the command line options that are supposed to pre-set encoding assignments).
