[gdal-dev] UTF-8 String Support in GDALOpen() and OGRSFDriverRegistrar::Open()

Hi All,

I'm having problems opening Raster and Vector Datasources that have
filenames and paths with special characters. I'm using GDALOpen for Raster
sources and OGRSFDriverRegistrar::Open() for Vector sources, the strings I
pass for the filenames are UTF-8 encoded. Does anyone know whether these
functions support UTF-8 encoding, and if not, whether there are any other
API entry points that do support UTF-8 and/or UTF-16?

Thank you in advance,
