Thanks a lot in advance for having a look into my problem.
We have an VC++ Application that interacts with a hardware. We recently
Globalized the Application. The hardware however is ASCII only.
However, there are a couple of strings that are sent to the hardware. We
have used UTF8 to convert all strings to be stored in the hardware. All
these strings and other data are passed to the hardware as a TCL file. The
hardware parses this file for all the information. The parser uses Control
Characters and escape sequences information as delimiter to data (name pair
What code GENERATE such control characters? Are they generated and insert
into the data before "convert to UTF-8", or you are inserting those control code
INTO the UTF-8 string?
What is the value of the control code? C0 [0x00-0x1F] or C1 [0x80-0x9F] or
some other thing?
The query we have is:
If a UNICODE strings is converted to UTF8, will the UTF8 encoded string
contain and control character or escape sequences?
It depend what VALUE do you use in the control code sequence. and where do
you insert into the data, insert into the UNICODE or insert into the UTF8
If so, is it possible to
eliminate the same?
We use the MultiByteToWideChar() and WideCharToMultiByte() to achieve the
encoding and decoding.
This is a MS specific implementation issue. once you find out the valid
control code point range, it should be easy for you to write small program to test
Thanks and Regards,
