1 unicode.inc _unicode_check()

Perform checks about Unicode support in PHP, and set the right settings if needed.

Because Backdrop needs to be able to handle text in various encodings, we do not support mbstring function overloading. HTTP input/output conversion must be disabled for similar reasons.

Parameters

$errors: Whether to report any fatal errors with form_set_error().

Return value

array An unindexed array with two values:

  • The Unicode support level as a constant.
  • A translated message explaining the current support level.

File

core/includes/unicode.inc, line 108
Provides Unicode-related conversions and operations.

Code

function _unicode_check() {
  // Ensure translations don't break during installation.
  $t = get_t();
