Howdy!

Daud_t.c contains a whole mess of declarations of constants. Each constant name includes the to and from encodings and the subsequence of bytes matched. I was able to see the sequence for {i} in there, and it appeared to be correct. The conversion process seems to be to chase pointers through a tangled mess ultimately leading to an output character. Or something along those lines. I'm doing a poor job of describing it, but I did not see anything out of line there.

I empirically determined that I needed to comment out LEFT CURLY BRACKET. My surmise is that if it was legal in its own right, it would get consumed early spoiling the matches...waitaminnit...(thinking as I type) I'll try moving that to the end to see if that allows it to catch otherwise unmatched {.

In the Daud encoding, curlies are the brackets around non-ASCII characters. They are, thus, special in this context. Hmmm...

Thanks for the thoughts.

yours,
Michael
