Conversions to/from UTF-8 from/to charactersets
Provides UTF-8 conversion for perl versions from 5.00 and up. It was mainly written for use with perl 5.00 to 5.6.0 because those perl versions do not support UnicodeMapUTF8 or Encode.
UnicodeUTF8simple is written in plain perl no C code and will work with any Perl 5 version. It is just slightly slower than Encode.
