[][src]Static encoding_rs::UTF_16BE

pub static UTF_16BE: &'static Encoding

The UTF-16BE encoding.

This decode-only encoding uses 16-bit code units due to Unicode originally having been designed as a 16-bit reportoire. In the absence of a byte order mark the big endian byte order is assumed.

There is no corresponding encoder in this crate or in the Encoding Standard. The output encoding of this encoding is UTF-8.

This encoding matches the Windows code page 1201.

This will change from static to const if Rust changes to make the referent of pub const FOO: &'static Encoding unique cross-crate, so don't take the address of this static.
