What character encoding is used in repl for C++?

I want to output the obelus (division sign) to the monitor. The following code should do it.

char div_sign ='\366'; cout << div_sign << endl;

This works in Visual Studio and from what I can find out it should work with any compiler. However, I do not get the correct output. The only thing I can think of is the repl does not use the OEM character set. Any suggestions to get this to work correctly in repl?
Thanks,
Doug

Copy paste the character into the repl to use instead of using the character’s ascii code. Generally works. πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ
