Hi All,

How could i increase the unicode range beyond 10000 ?

In python 2.5.4 by default the unicode range is 0x10000, but in some cases
i have unicode char beyond the limit. For those conditions it th an error.

"""File "E:\OpenERP\OpenERP
AllInOne\Server\library.zip\reportlab\pdfbase\ttfonts.py", line 1197, in
ValueError: unichr() arg not in range(0x10000) (narrow Python build)"""

In Linux we can convert the "Narrow Python Build" to "Wide Python Build"
using the command "--enable-unicode=ucs4 configures a wide Py_UNICODE"

But how could i do this in Windows.

I used OpenERP All in one installer to install python 2.5.

Thank you,
SatheeshKumar. P

    It's not supported. Hopefully, it will be supported in Python 3.3,
    due to PEP 393.

    Use Python3, which, after renaming unichar to chr, changed it to always
    accept the full range of codepoints, even when that means returning a
    two-char string on narrow builds, like windows.

    If OpenERP does not have a 3.x version, encourage them to make one to
    take advantage of the unicode improvements. Tell them the use case, that
    you want to use the full range, even on windows.

    Or file a bug report requesting a workaround in the 2.x version.
