This class can be used to manipulate text with Unicode encodings.

It can perform several types of operations that involve text strings encoded as UTF-8, UTF-16 or UTF-32, like:

- Get the text sequence for byte order mark for little and big endian
- Convert a given character code to Unicode encoded text and vice-versa
- Get the byte length of a given Unicode encoded character
- Convert text encoding between UTF-8, UTF-16 and UTF-32
- Get a part of an Unicode encoded string from a given position and an optional length
- Get the string length of an Unicode encoded text
- Determine whether a given string has Unicode encoded text

Unicode is the way to go when you need to mix texts that use different character sets in the same page.

There are several solutions to manipulate strings using Unicode. However most of them only manipulate text encoded in one of possible Unicode encodings: UTF-8 .

This class provides a complete solution to manipulate Unicode encoded text supporting UTF-16 and UTF-32 besides UTF-8.
