[edk2-devel] [edk] [PATCH] ShellPkg/edit: allow non-ASCII characters in edit

Posted by Heinrich Schuchardt 1 week ago
REF: https://bugzilla.tianocore.org/show_bug.cgi?id=2339

Currently it is not possible to add letters outside the range
U+0020 - U+007F to a file using the edit command.

In Unicode the following are control characters:

* U+0000—U+001F (C0 controls)
* U+007F (DEL)
* U+0080—U+009F (C1 controls).

For reference see:

* https://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0000.pdf
* https://unicode.org/charts/PDF/U0080.pdf

So the characters we should exclude from the file buffer are:
U+0000 - U+001f, U+007f - U009F

Allow all other characters as input to the file buffer in Unicode mode.
Allow only ASCII characters as input in ASCII mode.

When saving a file in ASCII mode replace non-ASCII characters by a question
mark ('?').
