I'm trying to user Haskell as a code-generating language, specifically
generating C# code files. The wish list is
1) reading UTF-8 coded text files into unicode-enabled Strings, lets call
2) writing UStrings to UTF-8 coded text files
3) using unicode strings in-code, that is in my .hs files

since I cannot really hope my input files (meta-data-files) are coded in
anything else than UTF-8.
I've searched&browser the web for information on the current state of
unicode in GHC/Hugs but the latest discussion I could find on the topic
leaves me less than happy. BUT it is from january 2005 so I thought maybe
you guys have more up-to-date answers to these questions.
The discussion I found:
