If, before M-x shell, I run C-x RET c (universal-coding-system-argument) I can change the coding system used by the shell. Therefore, given

echo Straße > foo 

foo will be encoded in the related CS.

How can I change the coding system after issuing M-x shell?

More generally, how can I set comint input/output encoding?
