My current task is to implement the wide character and multibyte character
routines (mblen, mbstowcs, mbtowc, wcstomcs, and wctomb) for our C runtime
We have the Unicode documents that describe one method for wide character
encoding. I cannot find any literature on multibyte character encoding.
I have a few questions regarding multibyte (mb) encoding. Does each
software development company have its own multibyte character encoding ?
Is a specific company's multibyte character encoding proprietary or
covered by copyright ?
Are public domain versions of multibyte character encoding available ?
[My impression is that the most common multi-byte encoding is the shifted
character sets used in the European ISO (ASCII-like) character codes. -John]
