[I18n-sig] thinking of CJK codec, some questions
Wed, 15 Mar 2000 15:36:34 +0100
Just a few comments about the design (don't have any knowledge
about Asian encodings):
1. Keep large mapping tables in single automatically generated C
modules that export a lookup object (ones that define __getitem__).
These could also be generated using some perfect hash table
generator, BTW, to reduce memory consumption.
2. Write small special encoders/decoders that take the lookup
table objects as argument.
3. Glue both together using Python code -- forget about the
PyCObject idea :-) ... it causes too many problems when the import
