Unicode bug in toUpper/toLower
|Reported by:||norpan||Owned by:||nobody|
|Type of failure:||Difficulty:|
|Test Case:||Blocked By:|
Since GHC now does full unicode, toUpper ought to be full Unicode also. According to the Haskell 98 Library Report, section 9: Function toUpper converts a letter to the corresponding upper-case letter, leaving any other character unchanged. Any Unicode letter which has an upper-case equivalent is transformed. I take as my example the character ÿ (which is the only one I can write in iso-8859-1 by the way). toUpper 'ÿ' ought to be unicode 0178 (hexadecimal). But it's not toUpper 'ÿ' gives 'ÿ' toLower (toEnum 0x178) gives toEnum 0x178 I understand that this may cause more trouble than it's worth, but either the report needs to be rewritten or the implementation changed.
