Some annoying compilation issues

Some annoying compile time issues. I am compiling on various Linux platforms. Just passing along because they seem to spit up a lot. Please add to the never ending to-do list.

QTextStream

Given this bug first appeared in Qt 4.5 https://bugreports.qt.io/browse/QTBUG-12055 Did CopperSpice fix it? Hopefully, in their "spare" time, the CopperSpice developers are removing/fixing the "single threadedness" of Qt. Only being able to paint in the main event loop is a severe flaw. The lack of ...

Re: Support for RHEL?

Re: fromUnicode() documentation bug

The intent of the QTextCodec class is to convert between a QString and some specified text encoding. For Qt, the QString is in UCS-2, whereas for CopperSpice the QString is in UTF-8. In either case, the QByteArray that is returned by QTextCodec::fromUnicode will be in whatever encoding was requeste...

Re: Support for RHEL?

I'm curious to find out about RHEL 6. The version of Qt 5 on RHEL 6 has, shall we say, "not good" HiDPI support. One customer has now standardized on $300 4K monitors as their new "desktop standard." Many of the screens now look like doo-doo all because a better monitor was installed. Video card, dr...

std::string_view

All, I'm porting Scintilla to CopperSpice for use in RedDiamond. Scintilla is really robust and many editors like Notepadqq and Juffed use it. I'm down to the last source file and two compilation errors in the input method, both with code like this. if ( !event->commitString().isEmpty() ) { const QS...
