*  http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=58184 - Cannot load charsets

The function src/charset.c:Parrot_load_charset is basically an empty stub, and does nothing except throw an exception

*  http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=58186

The function src/encoding.c:Parrot_load_encoding currently does nothing except throw an exception

*  http://rt.perl.org/rt3/Ticket/Display.html?id=58188

The function src/encoding.c:Parrot_find_encoding_converter is a stub with the note "XXX: Apparently unwritten". This probably needs to be documented. I've updated the function to throw an exception stating that it isn't implemented. --Andrew Whitworth

There are several functions in src/charset/unicode.c that are not implemented yet. These include:

decompose downcase_first upcase_first titlecase_first cs_rindex

These functions should probably all be implemented eventually.

General Cleanup

* Convert 'sprintf' to 'snprintf' where possible. See RT #39117.

* Properly encapsulate strings system so that only files and routines in src/strings/* directly access fields in the STRING structure

NFG Refactor

* Implement NFG string format.


* Change the name of runtime function 'const_string' so it's more clearly distinct from compile-time macro 'CONST_STRING'. (allison, r36230)
