  UTF-8 multibyte char string split into bytes rather than characters.



shopt -s extglob

# E.g., normal/expected behavior:

# Create a string:

# Replace left virtual empty strings with spaces, putting separated
# chars into positional parameters, then print them quoted:
set -- ${A//?()/ }
echo "${@@Q}"       #-> 'a' 'b' 'c'

# E.g., abnormal behavior:

# write 'REVERSE PILCROW SIGN' to B, then repeat as above:
printf -v B '\u204B'
set -- ${B//?()/ }
echo "${@@Q}"       #-> $'\342' $'\201' $'\213'

# NOTE: Since there is only one character (under the UTF-8 locale),
# this should have set only the first positional parameter with the
# character REVERSE PILCROW SIGN, not split it into bytes (AFAIK).
