ustring

This API is derived, in part, from work done by Nikita Poppov, which can be found here: https://github.com/nikic/scalar_objects/blob/master/doc/string_api.md

Note: UString is interchangable with zend strings for method parameters and can be cast for output/conversion to zend strings

This extension requires PHP7 and ICU (with headers)

Something went wrong with that request. Please try again.
