Description: small Common Lisp library for doing UTF-8-based in- and output
Trivial UTF-8 is a small library for doing UTF-8-based in- and output on a
Lisp implementation that already supports Unicode -- meaning char-code and
code-char deal with Unicode character codes.
The rationale for the existence of this library is that while
Unicode-enabled implementations usually do provide some kind of interface
to dealing with character encodings, these are typically not terribly
flexible or uniform.
The Babel library solves a similar problem while understanding more
encodings. Trivial UTF-8 was written before Babel existed, but for new
projects you might be better off going with Babel. The one plus that
Trivial UTF-8 has is that it doesn't depend on any other libraries.
