mini_utf8: a header only utf8 library
What is it?
This is a small header-only library to en- and decode utf-8 encoded strings. It started out as a file in a collection of header only libs, but has received enough work to warrant it's own project.
This library really only deals with en- and decoding of utf-8 encoded unicode codepoints. However, an attempt has been made to properly treat some of the oddities one might encounter, especially utf-16 relics like utf-8 encoded surrogates.
There isn't a separate README, all documentation is contained within the header file itself, which you can view here
You can get mini_utf8.h from its mercurial repository https://hg.tset.de/public/mini_utf8. To use it, just #include the header file in your sources.
mini_utf8.h and all accompanying documentation and additional source code is released under the MIT license.
