Subject Need help with strings
Date Wed, 08 Apr 2015 19:02:06 GMT
Hi all,

I'm going to improve the MathML type detection. Currently there exist 
files, that can be opened or imported fine, when the type detection 
would allow it.

I have attached a C++ file to show what I want to do.
The problem is, that MathML does not need to be encoded in utf-8 but can 
have any other encoding. For example MS Windows "Math Input Control" 
exports formulas in utf-16.

So my question is, which kind of string can I use, that is able to 
detect/use utf-16 and has the needed methods similar to C++ string 
methods find, rfind, insert, substring, clear, erase? Does AOO has such 
kind of string?

It is possible to get the encoding from the MathML file or set default 
utf-8, in case that information is needed for to instantiate a string 

Kind regards
