May be this helps:

utf2uxxx<- function(x){
 a<- tolower(as.u_char(utf8ToInt(x)))
 a<- gsub("[+]","",a)
 a<- paste(paste("\\",a,sep=""),collapse="")

Dear all,

Is there a quick and easy way of converting utf characters to the \uxxxx
form (necessary e.g. for packages)? I mean something working like this:

> utf2uxxxx("還簡")
[1] "\u00f5\u00e4\u00f6\u00fc"

It is easy to program but perhaps someone already has implemented this. (I
couldn't find anything useful from searches incl RSiteSearch).

Thanks in advance,

-- P.S.  Apologies if this is double posted - there was a network error and
the first message doesn't seem to have been sent out (but maybe it was).
