idn2_to_ascii_4i - API function
int idn2_to_ascii_4i(const uint32_t * input, size_t inlen, char *
output, int flags);
const uint32_t * input
zero terminated input Unicode (UCS-4) string.
number of elements in input .
char * output
output zero terminated string that must have room for at
least 63 characters plus the terminating zero.
int flags optional idn2_flags to modify behaviour.
THIS FUNCTION HAS BEEN DEPRECATED DUE TO A DESIGN FLAW. USE
idn2_to_ascii_4i2() INSTEAD !
The ToASCII operation takes a sequence of Unicode code points that make
up one domain label and transforms it into a sequence of code points in
the ASCII range (0..7F). If ToASCII succeeds, the original sequence and
the resulting sequence are equivalent labels.
It is important to note that the ToASCII operation can fail. ToASCII
fails if any step of it fails. If any step of the ToASCII operation
fails on any label in a domain name, that domain name MUST NOT be used
as an internationalized domain name. The method for dealing with this
failure is application-specific.
The inputs to ToASCII are a sequence of code points.
ToASCII never alters a sequence of code points that are all in the
ASCII range to begin with (although it could fail). Applying the
ToASCII operation multiple effect as applying it just once.
The default behavior of this function (when flags are zero) is to apply
the IDNA2008 rules without the TR46 amendments. As the TR46
non-transitional processing is nowadays ubiquitous, when unsure, it is
recommended to call this function with the IDN2_NONTRANSITIONAL and the
IDN2_NFC_INPUT flags for compatibility with other software.
Return value: Returns IDN2_OK on success, or error code.
