All the solutions are mainly for Windows and OnlineGDB only has an example for Python. So, I just want to know if printing Unicode characters is possible in this online compiler? If so, please instruct on how to.

It seems to me all you have to do is enter \u before the Unicode sign of the character/symbol and it works fine:

printf("\u00A9\u00AE\u0418\u26D4"); // Copyright, Registered, Cyrillic character 'i', Stop sign
Output: ©®И⛔

I am sorry, I forgot to mention that I am attempting to print it with ncurses. I can't seem to figure out how to make printw output the Unicode symbol. I have set the locale to ALL.
Thank you in advance.
