      Description

      We should switch from the ANSI to the wide character API on Windows. The benefits are:

      • Support for Unicode filenames.
      • Support for long path names.

      The required steps are:

      • Implement a method to convert UTF-8 strings to UTF-16. Maybe something like ByteBuf *utf16 = CB_to_utf16(string);
      • Switch from the 'A' to the 'W' functions of the Windows API, for example CreateFileW. (The 'A' functions are called implicitly now.)
