How to detect Unix terminal character encoding?



Is there a way to detect the character encoding set in the terminal which is calling my Java program? In Windows I can call the "chcp" tool and parse the output.

But what about in Linux or Mac?

There is no defined communication path from the terminal app to processes running inside a terminal window (short of those defined by the terminal being emulated, such as window size changes). This would be true on any another Unix-like OS as well. Environment variables must only be inherited when a process starts. Looking at the values of these environment variables is all you must do.. Do you really expect people to be changing the encoding while a terminal window is open? I can't imagine this is a common use case at all..
