seriously tho yall shits decide to add stuff like vertical languages to unicode and now my font renderer is longer by like 5ksloc
@er1n human languages (and human people for that matter) are complicated ok
@impiaaa @er1n struth
@djsundog @impiaaa @er1n ~~~~inherent complexity~~~~
@jk @impiaaa @er1n but is it irreducible inherent complexity
@djsundog @jk @impiaaa @er1n just tell everyone using non-latin scripts to just suck it up and deal with ASCII characters?
7 bits ought to be enough for everyone, right?
@calvin @djsundog @jk @er1n it's good enough for UTF-7!
I still hate that that exists
@impiaaa @djsundog @jk @er1ntired: UTF-8
@calvin @impiaaa @jk @er1n
@calvin @impiaaa @djsundog @jk @er1n glitched: WTF-8
@calvin @impiaaa @djsundog @jk @er1n even more inspired: EBCDICode
@samis @calvin @impiaaa @djsundog @jk @er1n UTF-EBCDIC actually exists.
Mind you, even IBM prefers to use UTF-16.
@samis @calvin @impiaaa @djsundog @jk @er1n @bhtooefr
this is a lot of @s
that said which EBCDIC codepage does it use
@Elizafox @samis @calvin @impiaaa @djsundog @jk @er1n Wikipedia says it's most similar to code page 1047.
That's actually a bit odd, as 37 is the one IBM usually uses for the US. (1047 contains the same characters, it's just 5 of them are swapped around.)
