The QTextDecoder class provides a state-based decoder.

The decoder converts a text format into Unicode, remembering any state that is required between calls.

See also QTextCodec::makeEncoder() and Internationalization with Qt.


QTextDecoder::~QTextDecoder () [virtual]

Destroys the decoder.

QString QTextDecoder::toUnicode ( const char * chars, int len ) [pure virtual]

Converts the first len bytes in chars to Unicode, returning the result.

If not all characters are used (e.g. if only part of a multi-byte encoding is at the end of the characters), the decoder remembers enough state to continue with the next call to this function.
