IDL41 — Unnecessary paragraph in section

  • Key: IDL41-8
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Real-Time Innovations ( Dr. Gerardo Pardo-Castellote, Ph.D.)
  • Summary:

    In section Simple Types, section on Char Types the paragraph that follows is redundant with what is already explained in other sections and moreover does not apply to the section. This causes confusion and therefore it should be removed.

    The ISO Latin-1 (8859-1) character set standard defines the meaning and representation of all possible graphic characters used in IDL (i.e., the space, alphabetic, digit, and graphic characters defined in Table 7-2 on page 15, Table 7-3 on page 16 and Table 7-4 on page 16). The meaning and representation of the null and formatting characters (see Table 7-5 on page 18) is the numerical value of the character as defined in the ASCII (ISO 646) standard. The meaning of all other characters is implementation-dependent.

    Suppress the unnecessary paragrap in section

    This paragraph overspecifies what is a char. It should be removed.
    Note that there is not such a paragraph for wchar.
