Usage

Using enough_convert is pretty straight forward:

import 'package:enough_convert/enough_convert.dart';

main() {
  final codec = const Windows1252Codec(allowInvalid: false);
  final input = 'Il faut être bête quand même.';
  final encoded = codec.encode(input);
  final decoded = codec.decode([...encoded]);
  print('${codec.name}: encode "$input" to "$encoded"');
  print('${codec.name}: decode $encoded to "$decoded"');

}

Wait, what is this about?

Dylan (not associated with this project in any way) explains the world of text encoding quite well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mZBa3sqTrI

It's 2022, do we still need this?

Short answer: yes.

Long answer: yes, there are still many web pages, emails and other content out there that is encoded in various text encodings.
