  • Blog Post: Encodings in Strings are Evil Things (Part 8)

    As more Unicode encodings are being finished, I find myself wanting to actually start using rmstring in real situations. However, most of my "real situations" involve legacy encodings. So, I need to start cracking on transcoding. The first concern is allowing adapters for arbitrary transcodings. A tricky...

    Eugh. Due to a three-part punch of piling-up work, time with family over the holidays, and being thoroughly sick, I haven't had much time to work on rmstring -- which means, of course, that this hasn't updated. I haven't given up on it though! (I'm not dead! I don't want to go on the cart...) If anything...

    First, I apologize for not updating recently -- at work, my dev machine's power supply died, and took my hard drive with it. Luckily, I had everything backed up; however, I had to copy everything over to, and work on, a single-monitor Longhorn dogfood box with no major apps installed. This went on for...

    In our last episode , we briefly discussed possible behaviors for encoding_cast , and we discussed how the STL's basic_string class was structured -- namely, we noted that it had several core functions that were overloaded many times for various types of input. We also noted that we could avoid many...

    In our last episode , we established that we wouldn't be able to make a true std::string replacement and still handle variable-width encodings. So, we started with the beginning lines of an rmstring class. However, this doesn't mean we are going to dispense with std::string entirely! But first, a quick...

    (Before I start: I've gotten a few suggestions about readability, since my two entries thus far have been quite long. So, entries will now contain a summary at the end with major facts/conclusions, and I'll go back and add them for the first two posts. I'll also try to pace my paragraphs more regularly...
