Quickest way to enumerate the alphabet in C#
View 2 Replies
Because I need to get all the characters of the alphabet OF AN ARBITRARY (variable) LANGUAGE, and that in the correct ordering sequence.
How can I do that without knowing the alphabet of every possible culture/language? System.Gobalization.Cultureinfo for example has information on date format, and a sorting method, and codepage info. But not info on the alphabet itselfs. Forthermore 'A' to 'Z' ordering iterating won't do, because German for example has characters such as √Ą√Ė√ú, which are after 'Z' in the codepage numbering, but follow after aou when sorting.
Can I somehow use the codepages to get all the characters, and sort them somehow ? By 'all the characters' I mean all letters, including numbers, but not punctuation marks. And possibly only upper XOR lowercase.
