Bug of the week

Bug 18129 - matchChunk returns wrong offset after high Unicode codepoints

This bug is regards the matchChunk() function, which searches for a regular expression in a target string and returns the range of characters that matched. LiveCode was returning the wrong range of characters when used with a string containing Unicode Supplementary Multilingual Plane characters.

This is the bug of the week because its reporter provided both a very helpful stack illustrating the problem and a detailed recipe. This allowed the bug to be fixed within days.

Help needed!
