International Language Environments Guide

Process Code Format

The process code format, which is also known as wide-character code format in the Oracle Solaris operating system, is private and subject to change in a future release. Therefore, when you develop an international application, do not assume that the process code format is the same. Instead, use the internationalization APIs in libc described in Internationalization APIs in libc.

Note –

The process code for all Unicode locales is in UTF 32 representation. For more detail on UTF 32, refer to the Unicode Standard Annex #19: UTF 32 and Unicode Standard Annex #27: Unicode 3.1 from the Unicode Consortium or
