The 2022 annual C++ Developer Survey
just launched. I reached out to Herb to ask about submitting additional
questions to be included in next year's survey. He let me know that
suggestions can be submitted to him at any time. So, I'd like to solicit
Unicode related questions that would help us get some data regarding
what people are doing in the wild. What would you like to know?

Some sample questions are below, please reply with additional
suggestions (or improvements to these).

  * What character encodings do you use for source files?
    ASCII, UTF-8, Windows 1252, EBCDIC, other.
  * Do you use characters not included in the C++ basic character set in
    identifiers in your source code?
  * What character encodings do you use for C++ character and string
    Compiler default (Windows active code page (ACP)), ASCII, UTF-8,
    Windows 1252, EBCDIC, other.
  * What character encodings do you support for run-time environments?
    UTF-8, Windows ACP, EBCDIC, other.
  * Do you develop international applications that support multiple
    languages and locales? If so, what language support features do you
    use for translations?
    ICU, Windows resource DLLs, GNU gettext, other.
  * Which of the C++ character types do you use?
    char, wchar_t, char8_t, char16_t, char32_t.
  * What Unicode libraries do you use?
    ICU, BasisTech Rosette, Win32, iconv, other.

This topic will be one of the agenda items for next week's telecon.
