Functions

char

Signature
cp.utf16.le.char(...) -> string
Type
Function
Description
Receives zero or more integers, converts each one to its corresponding UTF-16 byte sequence and returns a string with the concatenation of all these sequences.
Parameters
  • ... - The list of UCL codepoint integers to convert.
Returns
  • All the codepoints converted to UTF-16, concatonated into a string.

codepoint

Signature
cp.utf16.le.codepoint(s [, i [, j]]) -> integer...
Type
Function
Description
Returns the codepoints (as integers) from all characters in s that start between byte position i and j (both included). The default for i is 1 and for j is i. It raises an error if it meets any invalid byte sequence.
Parameters
  • s - The string
  • i - The starting index. Defaults to 1.
  • j - The ending index. Defaults to i.
Returns
  • a list of codepoint integers for all characters in the matching range.

codes

Signature
cp.utf16.le.codes(s) -> iterator
Type
Function
Description
Returns values so that the construction
Parameters
  • s - The string to iterate through.
Returns
  • An iterator

len

| Signature | cp.utf16.len (bigEndian, s [, i [, j]]) -> number | boolean, number | | -----------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | Type | Function | | Description | Returns the number of UTF-16 characters in string s that start between positions i and j (both inclusive). The default for i is 1 and for j is -1. If it finds any invalid byte sequence, returns a false value plus the position of the first invalid byte. | | Parameters |
  • bigEndian - If true, the string is 'big-endian'.
  • s - The UTF-16 string
  • i - The starting index. Defaults to 1.
  • j - The ending index. Defaults to -1.
| | Returns |
  • the length, or false and the first invalid byte index.

len

| Signature | cp.utf16.le.len (s [, i [, j]]) -> number | boolean, number | | -----------------------------------------------------|---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------| | Type | Function | | Description | Returns the number of UTF-16 characters in string s that start between positions i and j (both inclusive). The default for i is 1 and for j is -1. If it finds any invalid byte sequence, returns a false value plus the position of the first invalid byte. | | Parameters |
  • s - The UTF-16 string
  • i - The starting index. Defaults to 1.
  • j - The ending index. Defaults to -1.
| | Returns |
  • the length, or false and the first invalid byte index.

offset

Signature
cp.utf16.le.offset (s, n [, i]) -> number
Type
Function
Description
Returns the position (in bytes) where the encoding of the n-th character of s (counting from position i) starts. A negative n gets characters before position i. The default for i is 1 when n is non-negative and #s + 1 otherwise, so that utf8.offset(s, -n) gets the offset of the n-th character from the end of the string. If the specified character is neither in the subject nor right after its end, the function returns nil.
Parameters
  • s - The string
  • n - The character number to find.
  • i - The initial position to start from.
Returns
  • The index
