|The type of a character of text. |
The text system of ObjectiveLib uses Unicode to store its data, but it should not be considered a replacement for full-featured internationalized text systems like that provided by the International Components for Unicode provided by IBM. For example, ObjectiveLib has no knowledge of code points, only code units. Therefore, the meaning of surrogates is ignored, and malformed sequences can be created, though this will certainly be rare. The consistent use of UTF-16 to encode all text in ObjectiveLib is a great improvement over the almost entirely random treatment of text in standard C, but its drawbacks should be borne in mind.
