The size of the type "AnsiChar" is always one byte. It is impossible
to give the size of a generic "character" in a 1-byte string, because
in e.g. UTF-8 the size depends on the code point. To get the size of a
specific character, you can use
"maxlookahead" is the maximum number of bytes that routine is allowed
to check to find the complete character (e.g.
seems this routine has not yet been implemented for the Windows
