c++ – Krakozyabry at the beginning of a line in the console


Set encoding to utf-8:


I output the text in the stream:

cout << "Введите первое число: a = ";

And the console gives me this:

��ведите первое число: a =

I tried to search for information on the tyrnet, unfortunately I did not find anything, perhaps I was looking for it wrong. Please help me solve the problem.


This is because the low-level WinApi functions for outputting strings to the console in UTF-8 expect a completed string. Functions like puts will output your string correctly. And here is the output through basic_ostream<char>::operator<<(char*) probably for a string

"Введите первое число: a = "

first calls winapi with the first byte of the double-byte character В , then with the second and the rest of the string, which is displayed as:

��ведите первое число: a =
