Detailed Description

C API: 8-bit Unicode handling macros.

This file defines macros to deal with 8-bit Unicode (UTF-8) code units (bytes) and strings. utf8.h is included by utf.h after unicode/umachine.h and some common definitions.

For more information see utf.h and the ICU User Guide Strings chapter (http://icu-project.org/userguide/strings.html).

Usage: ICU coding guidelines for if() statements should be followed when using these macros. Compound statements (curly braces {}) must be used for if-else-while... bodies and all macro statements should be terminated with semicolon.

isError   ) 
Value:
{ \
    if((uint32_t)(c)<=0x7f) { \
        (s)[(i)++]=(uint8_t)(c); \
    } else if((uint32_t)(c)<=0x7ff && (i)+1<(capacity)) { \

        (i)=utf8_appendCharSafeBody(s, (int32_t)(i), (int32_t)(capacity), c, &(isError)); \
    } \
}

Append a code point to a string, overwriting 1 to 4 bytes.

The offset points to the current end of the string contents and is advanced (post-increment). "Safe" macro, checks for a valid code point. If a non-ASCII code point is written, checks for sufficient space in the string. If the code point is not valid or trail bytes do not fit, then isError is set to TRUE.

Parameters:
s const uint8_t * string buffer
i string offset, must be i<capacity
capacity size of the string buffer
c code point to append
isError output UBool set to TRUE if an error occurs, otherwise not modified

(Post-incrementing forward iteration.) "Safe" macro, checks for illegal sequences and for string boundaries.

The offset may point to the lead byte of a multi-byte sequence, in which case the macro will read the whole sequence. If the offset points to a trail byte or an illegal UTF-8 sequence, then c is set to a negative value.

}

Move the string offset from one code point boundary to the previous one and get the code point between them.

(Pre-decrementing backward iteration.) "Safe" macro, checks for illegal sequences and for string boundaries.

The input offset may be the same as the string length. If the offset is behind a multi-byte sequence, then the macro will read the whole sequence. If the offset is behind a lead byte, then that itself will be returned as the code point. If the offset is behind an illegal UTF-8 sequence, then c is set to a negative value.

Parameters:
s const uint8_t * string
start starting string offset (usually 0)
i string offset, must be start<i
c output UChar32 variable, set to <0 in case of an error

Move the string offset from one code point boundary to the previous one and get the code point between them.

(Pre-decrementing backward iteration.) "Unsafe" macro, assumes well-formed UTF-8.

The input offset may be the same as the string length. If the offset is behind a multi-byte sequence, then the macro will read the whole sequence. If the offset is behind a lead byte, then that itself will be returned as the code point. The result is undefined if the offset is behind an illegal UTF-8 sequence.

Parameters:
s const uint8_t * string
i string offset
c output UChar32 variable

#define U8_SET_CP_LIMIT ( s,
start,

length   ) 
Value:
{ \
    if((start)<(i) && (i)<(length)) { \
        U8_BACK_1(s, start, i); \
        U8_FWD_1(s, i, length); \
    } \
}

Adjust a random-access offset to a code point boundary after a code point.

If the offset is behind a partial multi-byte sequence, then the offset is incremented to behind the whole sequence. Otherwise, it is not modified. The input offset may be the same as the string length. "Safe" macro, checks for illegal sequences and for string boundaries.

Parameters:
s const uint8_t * string
start starting string offset (usually 0)
i string offset, must be start<=i<=length
length string length

Value:
{ \
    U8_BACK_1_UNSAFE(s, i); \
    U8_FWD_1_UNSAFE(s, i); \
}

Adjust a random-access offset to a code point boundary after a code point.

If the offset is behind a partial multi-byte sequence, then the offset is incremented to behind the whole sequence. Otherwise, it is not modified. The input offset may be the same as the string length. "Unsafe" macro, assumes well-formed UTF-8.

Parameters:
s const uint8_t * string
i string offset

#define U8_SET_CP_START ( s,

Value:
{ \
    if(U8_IS_TRAIL((s)[(i)])) { \
        (i)=utf8_back1SafeBody(s, start, (int32_t)(i)); \
    } \
}

Adjust a random-access offset to a code point boundary at the start of a code point.

If the offset points to a UTF-8 trail byte, then the offset is moved backward to the corresponding lead byte. Otherwise, it is not modified. "Safe" macro, checks for illegal sequences and for string boundaries.

Parameters:
s const uint8_t * string
start starting string offset (usually 0)
i string offset, must be start<=i

#define U8_SET_CP_START_UNSAFE ( s,

Value:
{ \
    while(U8_IS_TRAIL((s)[i])) { --(i); } \
}

Adjust a random-access offset to a code point boundary at the start of a code point.

If the offset points to a UTF-8 trail byte, then the offset is moved backward to the corresponding lead byte. Otherwise, it is not modified. "Unsafe" macro, assumes well-formed UTF-8.

int32_t utf8_appendCharSafeBody ( uint8_t *  s,
int32_t  i,
int32_t  length,
UChar32  c,
UBool pIsError 
)

Function for handling "append code point" with error-checking.

This is internal since it is not meant to be called directly by external clients; however it is U_STABLE (not U_INTERNAL) since it is called by public macros in this file and thus must remain stable, and should not be hidden when other internal functions are hidden (otherwise public macros would fail to compile).

int32_t utf8_back1SafeBody ( const uint8_t *  s,
int32_t  start,

)

Function for handling "skip backward one code point" with error-checking.

This is internal since it is not meant to be called directly by external clients; however it is U_STABLE (not U_INTERNAL) since it is called by public macros in this file and thus must remain stable, and should not be hidden when other internal functions are hidden (otherwise public macros would fail to compile).
