(I think you mean non-ASCII character, but with the unfortunate detour of Erlang into Latin-1-land maybe you mean non-ISO-8859-1-character. All characters that Erlang can process are Unicode characters, including ASCII and Latin-1 characters.)
It just works (for single-codepoint characters*), not for composites).
Erlang/OTP 17 [erts-6.0] [source] [64-bit] [smp:8:8] [async-threads:10] [hipe] [kernel-poll:false] [dtrace]
Eshell V6.0 (abort with ^G)
*) Characters don’t actually exist, only strings do, but that is a long story.
