[unixODBC-support] Unicode

Hello,
I'm reading about (unix)ODBC and in particular I'm trying to sort out
how the unicode part works.

Lets say your database back-end is using UTF-8 (I believe that is what
Postgres uses for unicode).  Do I have to call the ANSI functions in
this case?

Lets say you use the wide function versions and your database back-end
uses UTF-8 does the DM automatically convert to from UCS-2 (or UTF-16)?

In general does the DM wide API expects data to be in UCS-2?

Sorry lots of questions...

Thanks,
Frank
