g_unichar_compose (
  gunichar a,
  gunichar b,
  gunichar* ch


Performs a single composition step of the Unicode canonical composition algorithm.

This function includes algorithmic Hangul Jamo composition, but it is not exactly the inverse of g_unichar_decompose(). No composition can have either of a or b equal to zero. To be precise, this function composes if and only if there exists a Primary Composite P which is canonically equivalent to the sequence <a,b>. See the Unicode Standard for the definition of Primary Composite.

If a and b do not compose a new character, ch is set to zero.

See UAX#15 for details.
