I'm interested in parsing unicode scalars (I think they're called) to byte sized values but I'm not sure where to start. First thing I did was choose the unicode scalar U+1F496 (💖).
Next I cheated and ask ChatGPT. :) Amazingly from my question it was able to tell me the scaler is comprised of these 4 bytes:
240 159 146 150
I was able to correctly concatenate these characters and writeln printed the correct character.
s := char(240)+char(159)+char(146)+char(150);
The question is, how was 1F496 decomposed into 4 bytes?
