[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next] [Date Index] [Thread Index]

hmm.. string literals, I've added "\x[NN]NN" and "\u[NN]NN" support now (the former giving raw hex input, the latter doing the 1-5byte conversion.

Sure, that's not an absolute requirement, but a neato anyhow.

The rest is all in string.* namespace, that is, lstrlib. Haven't looked at the existing code (Unicode patch) yet, but I will. thanks.


to Rici: thanks for the offer, but.. did it already? :) You could still send in the (string literals) patch so I can compare the approaches. Perhaps harmonize the syntax, too.

... not to stop you from work, just curious,
what would require patching other than lstrlib?
And what's wrong with the existing lstrlib alternative?
