Proposal: _ctype_ table bitwidth change
one more TODO in src/lib/libc/shlib_version:
- change _ctype_ table in ctype.h and gen/ctype_.c 8bit -> 16 or 32bit.
it's insufficient bitwidth to implement all ctype class.
see isblank's comment in ctype.h.
our ctype.h doesn't supply macro version of isblankI(3).
because _ctype_ table is 8bit, it can not afford to reserve a bit for
(isblank is frequently called from shell, editor and so on, providing
macro version is important, i think)
i wrote patch to increase _ctype_ table bit to 16bit, patch is here.
very truly yours.
