It's so, I tested some parts of control center -which requires numbers- with Arabic-Indic digits, it works. I mean Arabic-Indic digits are recognized and converted to integer values.so , shouldn't any program using Glibc locale(locale functions from glibc) and supporting UTF8 (like MySQL-4.1.4-gama) support persian numbers (process them as integers)? Is there any function for conversion between Arabic-Indic digits and integers?I mean something like atoi for this purpose?(I couldn't find anything) _______________________________________________ PersianComputing mailing list [EMAIL PROTECTED] http://lists.sharif.edu/mailman/listinfo/persiancomputing
