DDSXTY14 — Be more precise on meaning of string lengths and bounds

  • Key: DDSXTY14-13
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Real-Time Innovations ( Dr. Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, Ph.D.)
  • Summary:

    In section String<Char8> type
    The specification does not provide a description of the "length" and "bound" values shown in Figure 9.

    In the case of strings, specially String8, there is an ambiguity on whether the "bound" and "length" represent the number of characters, or the number of bytes in the UTF-8 encoding mentioned in, or something else.

    an interpretation of the length of the string.
