register_uformat(3alleg4) Allegro manual register_uformat(3alleg4)


register_uformat - Installs handler functions for a new text encoding format. Allegro game programming library.


#include <allegro.h>

void register_uformat(int type, int (*u_getc)(const char *s), int (*u_getx)(char **s), int (*u_setc)(char *s, int c), int (*u_width)(const char *s), int (*u_cwidth)(int c), int (*u_isok)(int c));


Installs a set of custom handler functions for a new text encoding format. The `type' is the ID code for your new format, which should be a 4-character string as produced by the AL_ID() macro, and which can later be passed to functions like set_uformat() and uconvert(). The function parameters are handlers that implement the character access for your new type: see below for details of these.


set_uformat(3alleg4), uconvert(3alleg4), ugetc(3alleg4), ugetx(3alleg4), usetc(3alleg4), uwidth(3alleg4), ucwidth(3alleg4), uisok(3alleg4)
