Talk:Mork (file format)
|WikiProject Computing||(Rated Stub-class)|
Is this accurate? "...storing Unicode text takes three or six bytes per character." Assuming that Mork uses UTF-16 to encode Unicode, it would take either 2 or 4 bytes per character. Perhaps the format uses some funky encoding rather than UTF-16? —Preceding unsigned comment added by Remline (talk • contribs) 15:15, 21 March 2009 (UTC)
From the comments here:
...writes out Unicode strings without using UTF-8: writes out the unpacked wchar_t characters!...Worse, it hex-encodes each wchar_t with a 3-byte encoding, meaning the file size will be 3x or 6x (depending on whether whchar_t is 2 bytes or 4 bytes.)...
outdated "obsolence" section
"Mork was completely removed from Firefox in 2011. Plans existed for Mork to be replaced with MozStorage in Thunderbird 3.0., but the 8.0 release still uses the Mork file format."
- So was it completely removed or is it still used ?
- You cannot have it both ways.
- Someone with knowledge please step in and correct this.
