Author: Bill Poser <[email protected]> State: Final Type: Project Tcl-Version: 8.6 Vote: Done Created: 13-May-2008 Post-History: Tcl-Branch: tip-318-update
This TIP extends the string trim, string trimleft, and string trimright subcommands to function properly with non-roman writing systems by adding non-ASCII space characters to the default list of characters to be trimmed.
By default string trim and its single-sided variants remove ASCII whitespace characters. Some writing systems use other whitespace characters. Adding these characters to the default list will extend the Unicode-friendliness of Tcl.
The characters proposed to be added are:
U+1361 ETHIOPIC WORDSPACE U+1680 OGHAM SPACE MARK U+3000 IDEOGRAPHIC SPACE
