I’ve got a number of questions:
- Is my understanding of
TEXT(), written below, correct?
- What are the character encoding methods like ANSI, ASCII, and TCHAR, and how do they differ?
- Is there an easier way to implement
TEXT()without having to individually implement it across all strings?
I’ll try and explain my understanding of what
TEXT() does, and please correct me where I’m wrong: Having tried to read through the linked material, would it be correct to say
TEXT() converts the string from ANSI to TCHAR, so as to be readable on other platforms?
If this is correct, what is the default encoding method, and why is it the default (I believe I read somewhere in the linked material that the default encoding method is ANSI but I thought all characters were considered ASCII). Why can this type of character encoding not be read easily by other platforms?
If you need me to separate these into different topics let me know, I’m still new on forum rules.
