Iconv

Build Status

iconv wrapper, used to be ext/iconv

Abstract

Iconv is a wrapper class for the UNIX 95 iconv() function family, which translates string between various encoding systems.

See Open Group's on-line documents for more details.

Which coding systems are available is platform-dependent.

Installation

Add this line to your application's Gemfile:

gem 'iconv'

And then execute:

$ bundle

Or install it yourself as:

$ gem install iconv

Usage

  1. Simple conversion between two charsets.

    converted_text = Iconv.conv('iso-8859-15', 'utf-8', text)

  2. Instantiate a new Iconv and use method Iconv#iconv.

    cd = Iconv.new(to, from) begin input.each { |s| output << cd.iconv(s) } output << cd.iconv(nil) # Don't forget this! ensure cd.close end

  3. Invoke Iconv.open with a block.

    Iconv.open(to, from) do |cd| input.each { |s| output << cd.iconv(s) } output << cd.iconv(nil) end

  4. Shorthand for (3).

    Iconv.iconv(to, from, *input.to_a)

Attentions

Even if some extentions of implementation dependent are useful, DON'T USE those extentions in libraries and scripts to widely distribute. If you want to use those feature, use String#encode.
