    Just in case it's not so clear how that link demonstrates a possible solution, Curses uses STDIN, STDOUT, STDERR. So in a BEGIN block before initializing Curses, create a new IO pty and then redirect the standard file handles to/from it like in the example script in the link. Then Curses is connected to the pty.
    Hope it works!
      Hmmm, sounds promising!

      I suspect I'll have to switch to a multi-threading model so each client socket can have a separate thread and thus keep its own copy of Curses to play with.

      Thanks again!

[Corion]: If you have a BOM, that's a really easy way to recognize UTF-8. Otherwise, you can try to decode a file from UTF-8, and if that works OK and doesn't crash, most likely the file was valid UTF-8
[Corion]: But as "ansi" (Latin-1?) is a single-byte encoding, any file is a valid ANSI file
