- Jul 12, 2002I'm fixing up the clipboard patch, and I'm hitting some problems with
convert_setup; it forces to and from to utf-8 for all encodings. What
needs this? I think it'd be cleaner to do this at the caller, where
I need to be able to convert from penc to UCS-2 and back. I have it
working, but it'd be cleaner as part of string_convert.
You mentioned the reason iconv is optional is because of its size. I
wonder if there's an easy way to strip down iconv to only include
Unicode conversions and ISO-8859 tables, to a size that's reasonable to
package with Vim? I'll take a look, if you're interested. Being able
to depend on iconv for basic Unicode conversions (UCS2<->UCS4<->UTF8)
would be nice.
