Another library to drop out of my Dark Glass development project today is my unicode codec (now named darkUnicode).
https://github.com/chapmanworld/darkUnicode

This simple class can be used to encode and decode unicode code-points by hand (independent of RTL functions to do the same), and I’ve used it previously to create my own unicode text buffer and stream support.¬† It can also¬† be used to determine the unicode format of a text file, by calling the DecodeBOM() method in the appropriate order.

Tip: Depending on Little / Big Endian, the BOM for UTF-32 formats may match BOM for a UTF-16 format when only considering the first 16-bits, so test for 32-bit BOM first.

I hope someone finds this library useful.

Thanks for Reading!
