Unicode 4.0 support

As far as I know, currently, Python only supports Unicode 3.0. That is, for
example, the unicodedata module only holds the data from the Unicode
Standard version 3.0. Since Unicode 4.0 is now released, shouldn't it be
included at least in Python 2.4?

Recently I was editing a document in GoLive 6. I like GoLive because it has some nice features such as: * rewrite source code * check syntax * global search & replace (through several files at once) * regular expression search & replace. Normally my documents are encoded with the ISO setting. Recently I was writing an XHTML document. After changing the encoding to UTF-8 I used the

I understand that it is perfectly possible to store UTF-8 strings in a std::string, however doing so can cause some implicaions. E.g. you can't count the amount of characters by length() | size(). Instead one has to iterate through the string, parse all UTF-8 multibytes and count each multibyte as one character. To address this problem the GTKmm bindings for the GTK+ toolkit have implemented a own string class Glib::ustring...

I have not been able to find a simple, straight forward Unicode to ASCII string conversion function in VB.Net. Is that because such a function does not exists or do I overlook it? I found Encoding.Convert, but that needs byte arrays. Thanks, /Ger

This may look like a silly question to someone, but the more I try to understand Unicode the more lost I feel. To say that I am not a beginner C++ programmer, only had no need to delve into character encoding intricacies before. In c/c++, the unicode characters are introduced by the means of wchar_t type. Based on the presence of _UNICODE definition C functions are macro'd to either the normal version or the one prefixed with w. Because...

As was seen in another thread, there's a great deal of confusion with regard to surrogates. Most programmers assume Python's unicode type exposes only complete characters. Even CPython's own functions do this on occasion. This leads to different behaviour across platforms and makes it unnecessarily difficult to properly support all languages. To solve this I propose Python's unicode type using UTF-16 should have gaps in its index,...

Hi group, As I found out Boost has utf8_codecvt_facet So is there any library completely support for all UTF in this way or any other way to deal with Unicode more elegantly? How ICU supports C++ io stream?

Hi, I am currently learning QT, a portable C++ framework which comes with both a commercial and GPL license, and which provides conversion operations to its various types to/from standard C++ types. For example its QString type provides a toWString() that returns a std::wstring with its Unicode contents. So, since wstring supports the largest character set, why do we need explicit Unicode types in C++?

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>".

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
