 Always throws ErrnoError if unable to open iconv.

Detailed Description

Main charset conversion class, primarily focused on converting between the Blackberry charset and an application-specified one.

Additional conversions are possible through custom IConvHandle, but the goal of this class design is to deal with _one_ application defined charset, and provide a means to convert to/from that charset to/from any other charset needed by the Blackberry.

By default, this class assumes the Blackberry's charset is WINDOWS-1252, but some data, such as SMS message bodies, can have custom charsets as specified by the records. To convert from such a custom charset, use:

application sets up IConverter IConverter ic("UTF-8");

somewhere in the library, needing to convert from UCS2 to whatever the application selected IConvHandle ucs2("UCS2", ic); application_string = ic.Convert(ucs2, ucs2_string_data);

and to convert back... IConvHandle ucs2_reverse(ic, "UCS2"); ucs2_string = ic.Convert(ucs2_reverse, application_string_data);

Constructor & Destructor Documentation

Barry::IConverter::IConverter ( const char *  tocode = "UTF-8",
bool  throw_on_conv_err = false 
) [explicit]

Always throws ErrnoError if unable to open iconv.

If throw_on_conv_err is true, then string conversion operations that fail will also throw ErrnoError.
