SYNOPSIS

  use Encode::UTF8::Slow qw/bytes_to_codepoint codepoint_to_bytes/;

  my $codepoint = bytes_to_codepoint('🗼');

FUNCTIONS

codepoint_to_bytes

Takes a Unicode codepoint number and returns a scalar of UTF-8 encoded bytes for it. Exported on request.

bytes_to_codepoint

This is a naive encoder - it doesn't handle UTF-16 pairs, BOM or other noncharacters like 0xFFFE. It's also very slow!
