set_uformat(3)			Allegro	manual			set_uformat(3)

       set_uformat - Set the global current text encoding format. Allegro game
       programming library.

       #include	<allegro.h>

       void set_uformat(int type);

       Sets the	current	text encoding format. This will	affect	all  parts  of
       Allegro,	 wherever you see a function that returns a char *, or takes a
       char * as a parameter. `type' should be one of these values:

	  U_ASCII     -	fixed size, 8-bit ASCII	characters
	  U_ASCII_CP  -	alternative 8-bit codepage (see	set_ucodepage())
	  U_UNICODE   -	fixed size, 16-bit Unicode characters
	  U_UTF8      -	variable size, UTF-8 format Unicode characters

       Although	you can	change the text	format on the fly, this	is not a  good
       idea.  Many strings, for	example	the names of your hardware drivers and
       any language translations, are loaded when you call allegro_init(),  so
       if you change the encoding format after this, they will be in the wrong
       format, and things will not work	properly. Generally  you  should  only
       call  set_uformat()  once,  before allegro_init(), and then leave it on
       the same	setting	for the	duration of your program.
