[wg14/wg21 liaison] C and C++ Compatibility Jul Agenda

From: Aaron Ballman <compatibility.sg.chair_at_[hidden]>
Date: Mon, 21 Jun 2021 11:46:39 -0400
Our next meeting will be on Fri Jul 9, 2021 at 17:00 UTC

Note, this meeting is one week later than typical due to potential
conflicts with folks taking a long weekend for the Jul 4 US holiday.

You can join the meeting at https://iso.zoom.us/j/5513145100 with the
same password used as last time.

We will be discussing the following papers:

P2290R0 (https://wg21.link/p2290r0) Delimited escape sequences
Proposes new syntax for specifying escape sequences in a way that
explicitly delimits what is part of the escape sequence and what is
not. The paper targets C++ but is of interest in C due to the shared
syntax for these escape sequences.

P2316R0 (https://wg21.link/p2316r0) Consistent character literal encoding
Proposes making character literals in the preprocessor have the same
semantics as character literals during source translation. The
proposal wishes to standardizing existing practice in common C and C++
implementations by using the same character encodings in both phase 4
and 7 of translation.

P2295R3 (https://wg21.link/p2295r3) Support for UTF-8 as a portable
source file encoding
This paper proposes requiring implementations to support UTF-8 as a
source code file encoding in addition to whatever
implementation-defined file encodings they currently support.
