WinHugs and Unicode

The new version of WinHugs is not unicode compliant, and is unlikely
to be in time for the release. While its relatively easy to change it
to be unicode compliant, unfortunately a lot of the useful unicode
functions are only available on NT/2k/XP, and some are 98/ME/NT/2K/XP,
but not 95. Because of this, its going to be difficult to ensure that
a Unicode WinHugs works everywhere, the main problem being testing
rather than coding.

I may start sending some unicode patches over, so I can get WinHugs
building in Unicode mode, since these are ignored when compiling in
ANSI mode.

The other question is to what degree Hugs in Unicode compliant? Are
filenames etc. unicode based, or is it just the interaction?
