  1. Change assignee to "jan.nijtmans"
  2. Change closedate to "2456649.92613796"
  3. Change closer to "jan.nijtmans"
  4. Change icomment to:

    > because a valid 4 byte utf-8 char is beyond the BMP, > that means bigger than an unsigned short.

    Unless surrogate pairs are used to represent characters beyond the BMP.

    In TIP #388 you can read the reason for this: > 4 Not supported. The same as 3, but allowing the use of > Unicode surrogate pairs to represent the range \U010000 - \U10ffff

    Implementation of this is ongoing in the "tip-389-impl" Tcl branch.

    Hope this helps.

  5. Change login to "jan.nijtmans"
  6. Change mimetype to "text/plain"
  7. Change resolution to "Rejected"
  8. Change status to "Closed"
