  1. i can not send chines to .exe input. is the utf8 supported?
    i used this exe wtih and without --utf8-input, but cant get result for notEnglish symbols.

    and i tried to build sdcv... it is very complicated. please, write the manual for building this for windows. sdcv has many dependences on zlib, glib and other
