Could you be more specific? I used the discussion about the locale stuff to hop in and ask for getting the most wanted feature I'm looking for: A bare bone (shared) library without all this locale, wchar_t and multi byte overhead. Just having a library which always assume C locale and UTF-8 byte streams, as I ought all this locale stuff is a big block of code, which I heavily dislike and never use (got my own UTF-8 handling when and where required). This library with disabled locale stuff should otherwise still be compatible, just adding the bare minimum of overhead on those locale functions (allowing only the single C locale). Is that specific enough? -- Harald
