The iconv-typed package

[Tags:bsd3, library, test]
Type safe iconv wrapper

An experiment in bringing type safety to the iconv package.

Usage Example

This is almost a drop-in replacement. Compare the original code from iconv:

 module Main where

 import Codec.Text.IConv

 main :: IO ()
 main = print $ convert "UTF-8" "LATIN1" "hello"

With the equivalent in iconv-typed:

 module Main where

 import Codec.Text.IConv.Typed

 main :: IO ()
 main = print $ convert @"UTF-8" @"LATIN1" "hello"

As a result, this code will compile and run only if the passed encoding resolves to a supported encoding (as retrieved at compile time by calling iconv -l). For example, the following won't compile:

 main = print $ convert @"UFT-8" "LATIN1" "hello"

As UFT is mispelled.

Using GHC < 8.0 that doesn't supports TypeInType? No problem, we've got you covered!

 module Main where

 import Codec.Text.IConv.Typed

 main :: IO ()
 main = print $ convert (E :: E "UTF-8") (E :: E "LATIN1") "hello"
