Unicode support

Top  Previous  Next

Internally Guineu works with Unicode exclusively. Every time a non-Unicode file is read or written, Guineu performs a conversion to Unicode.


Controls do not impose any limitation on what a user can enter. Therefore it's always possible to enter any valid Unicode character. Functions that need to output ANSI data, e.g. STRTOFILE(), perform a conversion to ANSI as needed. Unicode characters that are not recognized are converted to a single question mark. This corresponds to the default behavior of VFP when converting from Unicode.
