A few months ago I submitted a small patch to ExtLib to the UTF8 module, adding three small but important functions
The patch hasn't been integrated in the ExtLib SVN (I've checked the trunk and tags on the SVN at code.google.com).
As it's actually a patch against Camomile, (at the time I didn't know at the time that UTF8 was taken from Camomile),
Richard Jones suggested that this is where the patch should go.
Could you provide a substring function or integrate the patch into Camomile? Also maybe you could host Camomile at
Attached is the diff against ExtLib 1.5.
