Unicode Use in Win32 Systems

Bill Hall - SimulTrans, LLC

Intended Audience: Manager, Software Engineer, Engineering Managers
Session Level: Intermediate

Microsoft's Win32 operating system was the world's first to incorporate Unicode as one of its supported character sets. Integrated completely into Windows NT and Windows CE, and half-heartedly into Windows 95 and 98, Unicode has had a profound influence on these operating systems and on programs designed to run there. In this workshop, we will examine how Unicode has affected these systems by looking at the Win32 character set and programming models (including Windows 5 features) from a technical point of view to help you discover how you can use Unicode to best advantage in your program design and implementation.
