Re: Parse error ... not well formed token



fixed


Hi Jim,

I don't see where this says that "UTF8" and "UTF-8" are different? Indeed, where it says "UTF8" it also refers it as "UTF-8" on the same line.

It also references a site from Sun Microsystems (now Oracle, but the link still works) that states that UTF8 and UTF-8 are the same.

Though, this whole IBM page is rather confusing... like it says CCSID 1208 isn't available on "System i5" -- which is completely untrue. I think that what it's trying to say is that UTF-8 with a byte order mark is not currently supported on IBM i... but the page is extremely unclear.

It's not that they are necessarily, different - but 2 entries

UTF8 1208 UTF-8 (IBM CCSID 1208, which is not yet available on the
System i5 platform)
UTF-16 1200 Sixteen-bit UCS Transformation Format, byte order
identified by an optional byte-order mark
UTF-16BE 1200 Sixteen-bit Unicode Transformation Format, big-endian
byte order
UTF-16LE 1200 Sixteen-bit Unicode Transformation Format, little-endian
byte order
UTF-8 1208 Eight-bit UCS Transformation Format

Hi Jim,

In my EXPAT_H copy book, I named the constant XML_ENC_UTF8, because you
can't put a dash in an RPG variable name. It's not possible to make a
constant or variable named XML_ENC_UTF-8 in RPG.

But, yes, it means UTF-8 (Which is the official name).

Not sure where in the Information Center it says that "UTF8" and "UTF-8"
mean something different. Can you provide me with a link?

I am still confused by sometimes seeing "UTF-8" and in your code "UTF8"..

XML_ParserCreate(XML_ENC_UTF8);

In the infocenter (under encoding) it seemed to treat these as different
definitions. Any differences?
