Data inspector : About WideChar / char16_t

Post by vincentlu » 30 Sep 2018 01:24

Hi ! Sir,

Does HxD show Unicode text in WideChar / char16_t ?
Can HxD show MultiByte for CJK text ?

The CJK(Chinese/Japan/Korea) use MultiByte texts.

I review the MultiByteToWideChar and WideCharToMultiByte API for ANSI/UTF8 convertion.

Thank you.

It does show UCS-2 characters for WideChar, as intended. It's not UTF-16, that will be added later as an additional data type.
The CJK(Chinese/Japan/Korea) use MultiByte texts.
There is no support for Asian double byte codepages yet.

UTF-8 may come at some point (in the decoded text area), I am not sure about other multi byte characters sets because they usually do not allow decoding at a random position in a file.
