I'm desperately trying to find the correct value of the LC_CTYPE
environment variable for isprint() to recognize ISO 8859-1 characters (it's
very useful for vi to print the characters instead of their hexadecimal
value).  I've had a quick look at the source code for isprint() and it
seems the LC_CTYPE environment variable isn't used by any of the is*()
macros and functions.

Any way for isprint() to behave correctly for poor French people like me?
