Yes, but you don't convert '/' and '.' from the execution character set to
UTF-8, do you? When I say "execution character set" I am refering to
something in the C standard (in case someone doesn't know). The compiler
converts string literals from the source character set to the corresponding
characters in the execution character set. If the system uses a character
set that isn't ASCII-base, I don't see how '/' could map to the correct
value in UTF-8. The numeric ASCII code for /, i.e. 47 would, however.

Still, if someone can say authorotatively that we don't need to care about
non-ASCII-based systems, this ddiscussion is pointless and our problems are

Hope I expressed myself better this time:-)
