A new release of my experimental GExperts version is available. I fixed yet another issue with Unicode / UTF-8. It works now with some Arabic strings which got converted to question marks before.

The usual warning applies: My unit tests still work so apparently I haven’t broken too much in the process. I also tested it manually, but only with a limited set of IDEs and only some of the functionality. So you might find new bugs. If you do, please contact me through my G+ profile (see upper right).

The download links are on the Experimental GExperts page as usual.

Unicode is hard – harder than I assumed

In my last post I announced that the GExperts code formatter is now Unicode aware. Little did I know. Mohamed Kamel sent me a source file with Arabic strings which still got converted to question marks. So today I have dived into the source code again. I nailed the problem with Arabic strings (and added a new unit test). But I am pretty sure I missed some more.

I’ll release a new version as soon as I got feedback from Mohamed.

Anybody got some source code with Japanese and Chinese strings for me?
