But presumably not the ones that look like u8"\U1234" ?

Yes, there is no reason to disallow that as It can't be misinterpreted by neither the compiler or people (and quite a lot of code would needlessly break)

I find your lack of faith in people's ability to misinterpret something disturbing.

😁 (Challenging your mail client)

\Uxxxx is unambiguous.

u8"é" is ambiguous. Both people and the compiler may interpret that in a variety of ways. Notably if I have utf-8 in that file, which I wrote on Linux, but then the msvc compiler thinks it's windows 1252...

People also seem to be confused


Be seeing you,
