Delphi: IOTASourceEditor uses UTF8, so conversions are needed to/from regular strings

Posted by jpluimers on 2019/11/27

Some important points from [WayBackGo straight to JAIL! DO NOT Pass GO! DO NOT Collect £200 – Dave’s Development Blog.

The most important one is that the IOTASourceEditor (which is hardly documented in the docwiki) uses UTF8, so conversions are needed to/from regular strings.

The other is that by now any Unicode letter can be used as part of an Object Pascal identifiers so if you match, you need to take that into account.

Note that in practice using non-ASCII Unicode letters still fails with a lot of tooling (not just limited to Object Pascal), so be careful with those.
