ugetat(3alleg4) 						  Allegro manual						   ugetat(3alleg4)

NAME
ugetat - Finds out the value of a character in a string. Allegro game programming library. SYNOPSIS
#include <allegro.h> int ugetat(const char *s, int index); DESCRIPTION
Finds out the character value at the specified `index' in the string. A zero `index' parameter will return the first character of the string. If `index' is negative, it counts backward from the end of the string, so an `index' of `-1' will return the last character of the string. Example: int third_letter = ugetat(text_string, 2); RETURN VALUE
Returns the character value at the specified index in the string. SEE ALSO

NAME
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
