Hoping someone can help with this one, as I’m not totally up and running with how Juce handles different string types.
I need to control an old text machine.
This old thing wants text via the com-port, and as far as I can tell it wants it as ascii.
I now send the text like this
This works fine.
But, now I need to support “special character” like Æ,Ø,Å. Etc
Because of the way the text machine works, I need to replace these characters in my String with two special bytes/characters so:
“Æ” becomes the two bytes 0x08 0x4d.
How can I replace the special characters with the escape bytes?
Will the Juce string mess up these bytes, what are my options?
