Re: predicate->char-set considered harmful

This page is part of the web mail archives of SRFI 13 from before July 7th, 2015. The new archives for SRFI 13 contain all messages, not just those from before July 7th, 2015.

My unstated (definitely understated) point is that predicate->bitset
will never return in the general case, which isn't much different from
how long it will take predicate->char-set to return on systems that use
a four-byte character representation.
