#3980 closed enhancement (fixed)

GDAL_FILENAME_IS_UTF8 option not documented

Reported by: Mateusz Łoskot Owned by: warmerdam
Priority: normal Milestone: 1.9.0
Component: Docs Version: svn-trunk
Severity: normal Keywords: unicode


The option GDAL_FILENAME_IS_UTF8 seems to be included in the public configuration set, but it is not documented anywhere (as far as I'm searching correctly).

I have an impression I have seen it described in one of the RFCs related to Unicode, but can't find it there now.

If relevant, could anyone knowledgeable update the docs, please?

Agreed, I will attempt to document it later today.

It is intended to provide a mechanism for applications to restore treatment of filenames as not UTF-8 (as was the case in previous versions of GDAL) on windows only.

I have documented this briefly on VSIFOpenL() in trunk (r21840) and in the trac wiki ConfigOptions topic.
