Greetings Lispers

Pleas can anyone explain or teach me how to use UTF-8 characters in lisp, while making GUI. for example I am a GEORGIAN and my native letters are :
ა,ბ,გ,დ,ე,ვ,ზ,თ,ი,კ,ლ,მ.... and so on. Are there any solution about it?

Thanks for attention :geek:

Many lisp implementations support unicode characters in strings so you should look around libraries of this kind: trivial-utf-8, babel.

I will investigate this one and I'll see what can I implement.

Trivial UTF-8 was written before Babel existed, but for new projects you might be better off going with Babel. The one plus that Trivial UTF-8 has is that it doesn't depend on any other libraries.


Babel is a charset encoding/decoding library, not unlike GNU libiconv, but completely written in Common Lisp.


There should be no problem and if you're struggling with the installation, look here at Quicklisp.

I'll check it.
