Tip: Putty displaying strange characters in output (Linux)

I have been having this problem for a while, while getting output from gcc strange characters are output before and at the end of every word.
eg. error: âcoutâ is not a member of âstdâ

To solve this problem in Putty, you need to change Character Set Translation to UTF-8. Apparently gcc’s output is only unicode.

So its Settings -> Window -> Translation -> Character Set Translation

There you go…..
