After attending the last Unicode conference in San Jose, I got
the clear message that using the same vendor Unicode conversion
apis is a necessity to guarantee safe round trip conversions.
Well, I've look everywhere I could think, even took two days
vacation and went to Comdex, with no luck, trying to locate the
1. Unicode conversion apis (to/from) for
DOS, os/2, win31, win95, winNT, NetWare 3.x NLMs, NetWare
4.x NLMs. This part at a minimum.
2. String manipulation APIs for Unicode data such as the _tcs*
from Microsoft or the uni* from Novell, but servicing all
the above plaftforms. I am hoping to use an off-the-shelf
solution that also includes the strcoll family of apis.
I work on the internationalization of a win95 or winNT management
console which manages dos, mac, win31, os/2, win95, winNT clients
with or without NetWare clients installed. I haven't been able to
implement a Unicode solution into the management scheme for lack
Unicode support in some of those clients and for lack of
I would appreciate some pointers. You can respond to me directly
(firstname.lastname@example.org) if you want to ease the load on
the list messages.
