Welcome to IWETHEY!

New Dont know ICU
but I will agree that the C++ library complexity is...well, high.

Incidentally, NextStep had a fully compliant unicode string object for Objective C from the beginning (1990-ish).

What is C++'s excuse? Particularly given that its creator was a European? Definitely short sighted tunnel vision.

New Time line?
Would you give me the time line of NextStep and its evil twin Objective C vs that of C++?

I think you'll find the answer there....

New Released in 1988
I recall buying a copy of NextWorld #1 (from the MacWorld people) while working for a little Mac utilities company in Boulder in 1990 and showing it around the office.

Unicode from the beginning I'm told (I started working with them in 1997).

             Unicode and ASCII - (StevenYap) - (1)
                 Re: Unicode and ASCII - Nitpick II - (jb4)
         you are confusing text with display - (boxley) - (12)
             Uhhh..Not quite, Bill - (jb4) - (11)
                 And that is one thing that sucks about Unicode - (ben_tilly) - (9)
                     At least they're consistent - (jb4) - (8)
                         But it is a problem - (ben_tilly)
                         Except for that full width/half width ascii thing - (tuberculosis) - (5)
                             I dunno... - (jb4)
                             My personal take on it - (jake123) - (3)
                                 Perhaps, but it makes searching tricky - (tuberculosis) - (2)
                                     Well, if it was an easy problem - (jake123)

                         Have you all seen the HUGE unicode poster? - (FuManChu)
                 close enough to debug a table entry :-) - (boxley)

                     Now how about addressing my example - (drewk) - (17)
                         The best explanation that I've seen of why 2 digits... - (ben_tilly)
                         No, but they were xenophobic etc - (jake123) - (15)
                             xenophobic's probably the wrong word - (SpiceWare) - (14)
                                 Yeah, you're right - (jake123) - (13)
                                     How about "escessively humble"? - (drewk) - (4)
                                         Look, the point about the two digits for a year is well - (jake123) - (1)
                                             Disagree - (jb4)
                                         Maybe... - (tuberculosis) - (1)
