* Glib uses UTF-8 for its strings, and GUI toolkits like GTK+ that use

* By default, Glib assumes that file names on disk are in UTF-8
* By default, GLib assumes that file names on disk are in UTF-8

* still contain file names created in "older" encodings, such as
* ISO-8859-1. In this case, for compatibility reasons, you may want
* to instruct Glib to use that particular encoding for file names
* to instruct GLib to use that particular encoding for file names
* rather than UTF-8. You can do this by specifying the encoding for
* file names in the [`G_FILENAME_ENCODING`][G_FILENAME_ENCODING]
* environment variable. For example, if your installation uses
* ISO-8859-1 for file names, you can put this in your `~/.profile`
