Broker 10.5 | webMethods Broker Documentation | webMethods Broker Client C API Programmer's Guide | Unicode String Functions | Overview
This appendix describes the string manipulation functions provided by the webMethods Broker C API for platforms that do not provide built-in support for Unicode strings. The functions are grouped into the following four categories:
*Basic Unicode String Functions
*Unicode String Conversion Functions
*Unicode String Copy/Conversion Functions
*Unicode String Length Functions
Many of the functions described in this appendix accept string parameters in ANSI or UTF-8 format. The ANSI string format consists of 8-bit, ISO-Latin-1 characters. UTF-8 is the Unicode Transform Function 8 format, which allows each Unicode character in a string to be represented as a sequence of up to four 8-bit, ISO-Latin-1 characters.
