Hi All, What do you think about adding Utf8-support to the FTP components in ICSv7 for compilers D7 - D2007 as well?
Currently the components treat path and file names as 8-bit ANSI. This works quite well as long as both client and server use the same charset or only characters from the ASCII 7-bit range. Any ideas are welcome. We realy need a solution that works with Delphi 2009 as well where String maps to an UTF-16 string. My prefered solution is changing those string-properties to WideString by introducing a new type alias "UnicodeString" that maps to WideString in compilers pre-D2009 and to String/UnicodeString in Delphi 2009 and later. I think this feature cannot be implemented w/o breaking existing code. Has anybody experience with WideString? This string type is not reference counted and may introduce a serious performance penalty. -- Arno garrels -- To unsubscribe or change your settings for TWSocket mailing list please goto http://lists.elists.org/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/twsocket Visit our website at http://www.overbyte.be
