PersonalData->name -> UTF-8 [solved]

Post by Jens » Mon Jul 05, 2010 10:07 pm

Boring question coming up. I'm currently using UTF-8 as my unicode support. I want to access PersonalData->name which tells me it's stored as UTF-16. I've searched the Internet wide on how convert it and I'm come up short, which feels a bit strange as I thought it was a really simple problem. I tried using wcstombs(), but that doesn't seem to work for me. Anyone out there who knows this stuff?

a quick search gave me this: http://www.deanlee.cn/programming/conve ... e-to-utf8/

see if that works.

Well, sir, your Google skills are obviously more refined than mine, because that looks exactly like what I need. Thanks a bunch.

Actually the correct code set for the Personal Data is not UTF-16, it's UCS2, which is very close to UTF-16 that the conversion code will work, but there are a couple of minor differences in the coding of the glyphs above 65535 or 0x0000FFFF in the Unicode pages.
