Unicode is a vast specification covering many things. Encluding serveral representations of some very broad (many natural languages) character sets.
There are also associated encodings for those character sets.
Some encodings have a fixed size and some are variable.
A variable size encoding has some byte sequences which represent specific characters and other byte sequences which are used as flags to indicate that additional bytes are needed to determine the actual character.
A multi-byte character set might either mean a fixed size representation of a character set but normally means a variable sized encoding which started with a single byte for the initial encoding. UTF8 is a variable sized encoding and can thus also be considered a multibyte character set.
For coverage of this specific point see the following
I have to develop an application that captures a portion of the desktop every 30 seconds, after viewing the captured image in the window of application, should find (and then highlight) which regions of the new image have changed compared to the previous image.
I'm always a bit suspicious about forms of array initialization, so I automatically assumed that was what you're at.
Sure, the code is missing a const there, which makes me wonder if it has been compiled as C-code, rather than C++? But I wonder if it's even possible to compile the invocation of a socket object as C-code - I don't think it is...
In fact it should not, as it would require the compiler to analyze the semantics of the code in order to make sure that the variableSTRLEN is not being changed. Even though this could be done in an easy example like this, the syntax is just as wrong as a missed ';'. Have you ever seen a compiler insert a missing ';' for you, no matter how obvious the fix?
