[sword-devel] MacSword 1.1.3

So all I have to do is replace char* StringMgr::upperUTF8(char* t, 
const unsigned int maxlen)?

If so, then what is maxlen for? Is it expecting t to be overwritten or 
just a maximum buffer allocated? I assume that sword will dealloc any 
buffer I return.

thanks -Will
