GNU Libunistring

https://www.gnu.org/software/libunistring/
Unicode string library.

Libunistring is a library providing functions to manipulate Unicode strings and for manipulating C strings according to the Unicode standard.

Libunistring can be used by applications involving non-trivial text processing, such as upper/lower case conversions, line breaking, operations on words, or more advanced analysis of text. Text provided by the user can, in general, contain characters of all kinds of scripts. The text processing functions provided by this library handle all scripts and all languages.

It also may be useful for an application that already uses the ISO C / POSIX <ctype.h>, <wctype.h> functions and the text it operates on is provided by the user and can be in any language.

The library is also useful for applications using Unicode strings as internal in-memory representation.
