Read chinese problem

I have a problem to read chinese character on linux , the problem is :
we export a file (there are chinese characters inside) from the database to the shell , but we found that we can't read the chinese characters ( all become unreadable words) , maybe it is caused by the linux language setting , could suggest how can I read chinese on the linux shell ? thx.

You should take a look at this thread. There's a lot of info about reading/writing Chinese in it.

Also, have you heard of Red Flag Linux? It's a distro of Linux entirely in Chinese. If you have an old computer laying around, install that and see if it does what you need.

Hope this helps,

Read Chinese

Have you installed apt-get? You can just type apt-get install xcin so that you can read Chinese in Linux.
