9.2 gauche.charconv - Character Code Conversion

Module: gauche.charconv
This module defines a set of functions that converts character encoding schemes (CES) of the given data stream. This module also overloads Gauche's file stream creating functions (such as open-input-file and call-with-output-file) so that they accept :encoding keyword argument.

As of release 0.5.6, Gauche natively supports conversions between typical Japanese character encodings: ISO2022JP, ISO2022JP-3, EUC-JP (EUC-JISX0213), Shift_JISX0213, UTF-8 (Unicode 3.2). Conversions between other encodings are handled by iconv(3). See section 9.2.1 Supported character encoding schemes, for details.
