Enco

Build Status Gemnasium Build Status

Enco will convert any string to utf-8, based on original string encoding.

Installation

gem install enco

Usage

It is simple. Just call

my_utf8_string = Enco.to_utf8 any_string

If you pass something other, than a string, it'll return non string objects back:

Enco.to_utf8(not_a_string) === not_a_string # true

Enco does not touch input string, so you may pass frozen strings to it and it'll handle them correctly.

frozen_string = "hi there!".frozen
Enco.to_utf8 frozen_string         # utf-8 analog of frozen_string

Plugins

Add

require 'enco/string_to_utf8'

and you'll get #to_utf-8 method on String objects:

"hi there!".to_utf8

It delegates to Enco.to_utf8 and accepts same options as

Enco.to_utf8 "hi there!"
