BTW, you can declare "local" variables inside a function as static,
which makes them "global", but locally scoped. The code should be
basically equivalent, but perhaps more elegant...


uchar_t *generate_default_upcase(void)
- const int uc_run_table[][3] = { /* Start, End, Add */
+static const int uc_run_table[][3] = { /* Start, End, Add */
{0x0061, 0x007B, -32}, {0x0451, 0x045D, -80}, {0x1F70, 0x1F72, 74},
{0x00E0, 0x00F7, -32}, {0x045E, 0x0460, -80}, {0x1F72, 0x1F76, 86},
{0x00F8, 0x00FF, -32}, {0x0561, 0x0587, -48}, {0x1F76, 0x1F78, 100},
