--multibyte_chars, --no_multibyte_chars

Enables and disables processing for multibyte character sequences in comments, string literals, and character constants.


The default depends on the regional language settings of your machine. For example:

  • --no_multibyte_chars is the default for English.

  • --multibyte_chars is the default for Japanese.


Multibyte encodings are used for character sets such as the Japanese Shift-Japanese Industrial Standard (Shift-JIS).
