get_uformat - Finds out what text encoding format is currently selected. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int get_uformat(void); DESCRIPTION
Finds out what text encoding format is currently selected. This function is probably useful only if you are writing an Allegro addon deal- ing with text strings and you use a different codepath for each possible format. Example: switch(get_uformat()) { case U_ASCII: do_something(); break; case U_UTF8: do_something_else(); break; ... } RETURN VALUE
Returns the currently selected text encoding format. See the documentation of set_uformat() for a list of encoding formats. SEE ALSO

set_uformat - Set the global current text encoding format. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> void set_uformat(int type); DESCRIPTION
Sets the current text encoding format. This will affect all parts of Allegro, wherever you see a function that returns a char *, or takes a char * as a parameter. `type' should be one of these values: U_ASCII - fixed size, 8-bit ASCII characters U_ASCII_CP - alternative 8-bit codepage (see set_ucodepage()) U_UNICODE - fixed size, 16-bit Unicode characters U_UTF8 - variable size, UTF-8 format Unicode characters Although you can change the text format on the fly, this is not a good idea. Many strings, for example the names of your hardware drivers and any language translations, are loaded when you call allegro_init(), so if you change the encoding format after this, they will be in the wrong format, and things will not work properly. Generally you should only call set_uformat() once, before allegro_init(), and then leave it on the same setting for the duration of your program. SEE ALSO
