Yes I agree to what you are saying above. Let em explain what I want.
Character U+4321 is the unicode code-point but to store this character into
a file we need to use a certain encoding format.
e.g. There must be some algorithm to find *the sequence of bytes* that
represent this character into *UTF8 encoding*. Similar algorithms must be
there for UTF16 and UCS2 encodings, I want C implementation of such
