UTF-8/T.61 API Proposal
"As in the LDAPv3 protocol itself, all DNs and string
values that are passed into or produced by the C LDAP
API are represented as UTF-8 characters. Some
API implementations may support other character sets,
but the mechanisms used are not currently specified in
Here is a brief implementation proposal:
Implement the required translation of the v2 T.61
characters to UTF-8 for the API (client side).
Commit behind #ifdefs.
Provide a draft for a C API extension to the allow
application specification of character set translations.
Implement extension and provide translation to/from T.61.
Still behind #ifdefs.
Implement/provide 8859 translation.
Revise draft and implementation before submitting
draft to IETF-LDAPEXT.
