Sofud now works with Tango
Posted by randomz on July 11, 2007
I just commited the changes to Sofud that make it work with Tango instead of Phobos. As expected, it wasn’t really difficult, just annoying. Writing I/O code is pretty error prone if you’re working on the level of Tango conduits and trying to support all Unicode encodings. Debugging was the really tough part of it; most of the conversion was done with a couple of find & replaces.
I shall release this version as 1.0.alpha.2 as soon as I feel like it. Right now, I’m too exhausted from bug fixing. :o)
By the way, I finally found a nice text editor that can correctly handle any Unicode encoding. It’s a small freeware called BabelPad. To my puzzlement, most editors out there can only handle UTF-8 and UTF-16, even though UTF-32 has been around for a long time now.
