           Summary: std.format.doFormat() pads width incorrectly on Unicode
                    strings
           Product: D
           Version: 0.160
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows
            Status: NEW
          Keywords: wrong-code
          Severity: normal
          Priority: P2
         Component: Phobos
        AssignedTo: bugzilla digitalmars.com
        ReportedBy: deewiant gmail.com


import std.string;

void main() {
        assert(format("%8s", "foo")             == "     foo");
        assert(format("%8s", "foobar")          == "  foobar");
        assert(format("%8s", "hello")           == "   hello");
        assert(format("%8s", "h\u00e9ll\u00f4") == "   h\u00e9ll\u00f4");
        // this passes, though it shouldn't: assert(format("%8s",
"h\u00e9ll\u00f4") == " h\u00e9ll\u00f4");
}
--

In the above, the last assertion fails.

One would expect the last two strings, having five characters each, to both be
padded in the front by three spaces: however, it appears the byte count is
being used for determining the length and not the actual character count, and
so the last string is padded by only one space.

The only relevant documentation I found is:
 Width
    Specifies the minimum field width. If the width is a *, the next
    argument, which must be of type int, is taken as the width. If
    the width is negative, it is as if the - was given as a Flags
    character.

"field width" could be both interpreted as " byte length" and "UTF codepoint count". --

I suggest it's codepoint count, as field width is for display purposes.
