NAME

Types::Encodings - type constraints for Bytes and Chars

DESCRIPTION

Additional type constraints and coercions to complement Types::Standard.

Type constraints

Str

Alias for Types::Standard type constraint of the same name.

Bytes

Strings where utf8::is_utf8() is false.

Chars

Strings where either utf8::is_utf8() is true, or each byte is below 0x7F.

Coercions

Encode[`a]

Coercion to encode a character string to a byte string using Encode::encode(). This is a parameterized type coercion, which expects a character set:

   use Types::Standard qw( Bytes Encode );
   
   has filename => (
      is     => "ro",
      isa    => Bytes->plus_coercions( Encode["utf-8"] ),
      coerce => 1,
   );
Decode[`a]

Coercion to decode a byte string to a character string using Encode::decode(). This is a parameterized type coercion, which expects a character set.
