8-bit chars in Solaris 2 SUMMARY

I posted asking for tips on how to set up my Solaris 2.1 environment to
let 8-bit characters pass through. In the "old" 4.1 world one would do:

setenv LC_CTYPE iso_8859_1
stty pass8

The setenv obviously works the same way in SysV but how to do the "stty
pass8"? The replies (which have been numerous) suggested using:

stty -istrip

which seems to do the magic thing. Other stty options suggested have
been -parenb and cs8. I modified the .cshrc to use all three of them
and now it works just fine.
