Documentation

Module Uchar
: (module Stdlib__Uchar)

type t

The type for Unicode characters.

A value of this type represents a Unicode scalar value which is an integer in the ranges 0x0000 ... 0xD7FF or 0xE000 ... 0x10FFFF .

val min : t

min is U+0000.

val max : t

max is U+10FFFF.

val bom : t

bom is U+FEFF, the byte order mark (BOM) character.

Since 4.06.0

val rep : t

rep is U+FFFD, the replacement character.

Since 4.06.0

val succ : t -> t

succ u is the scalar value after u in the set of Unicode scalar values.

Raises Invalid_argument if u is Uchar.max .

val pred : t -> t

pred u is the scalar value before u in the set of Unicode scalar values.

Raises Invalid_argument if u is Uchar.min .

val is_valid : int -> bool

is_valid n is true if and only if n is a Unicode scalar value (i.e. in the ranges 0x0000 ... 0xD7FF or 0xE000 ... 0x10FFFF ).

val of_int : int -> t

of_int i is i as a Unicode character.

Raises Invalid_argument if i does not satisfy Uchar.is_valid .

val to_int : t -> int

to_int u is u as an integer.

val is_char : t -> bool

is_char u is true if and only if u is a latin1 OCaml character.

val of_char : char -> t

of_char c is c as a Unicode character.

val to_char : t -> char

to_char u is u as an OCaml latin1 character.

Raises Invalid_argument if u does not satisfy Uchar.is_char .

val equal : t -> t -> bool

equal u u' is u = u' .

val compare : t -> t -> int

compare u u' is Stdlib.compare u u' .

val hash : t -> int

hash u associates a non-negative integer to u .

UTF codecs tools

type utf_decode

The type for UTF decode results. Values of this type represent the result of a Unicode Transformation Format decoding attempt.

val utf_decode_is_valid : utf_decode -> bool

utf_decode_is_valid d is true if and only if d holds a valid decode.

val utf_decode_uchar : utf_decode -> t

utf_decode_uchar d is the Unicode character decoded by d if utf_decode_is_valid d is true and Uchar.rep otherwise.

val utf_decode_length : utf_decode -> int

utf_decode_length d is the number of elements from the source that were consumed by the decode d . This is always strictly positive and smaller or equal to 4 . The kind of source elements depends on the actual decoder; for the decoders of the standard library this function always returns a length in bytes.

val utf_decode : int -> t -> utf_decode

utf_decode n u is a valid UTF decode for u that consumed n elements from the source for decoding. n must be positive and smaller or equal to 4 (this is not checked by the module).

val utf_decode_invalid : int -> utf_decode

utf_decode_invalid n is an invalid UTF decode that consumed n elements from the source to error. n must be positive and smaller or equal to 4 (this is not checked by the module). The resulting decode has Uchar.rep as the decoded Unicode character.

val utf_8_byte_length : t -> int

utf_8_byte_length u is the number of bytes needed to encode u in UTF-8.

val utf_16_byte_length : t -> int

utf_16_byte_length u is the number of bytes needed to encode u in UTF-16.
