I tried the following:

#lang racket

(current-output-port (reencode-output-port (current-output-port) ""))

(display "à")

but this displays nothing both in DrRacket and in the console.
Also "program >tempfile" from the console produces a file of length 0.

Am I misunderstanding the use of reencode-output-port?
