Unicode::MapUTF8 provides an adapter layer between core routines for
converting to and from UTF8 and other encodings.  In essence, a way
to give multiple existing Unicode modules a single common interface
so you don't have to know the underlying implementations to do
simple UTF8 to-from other character set encoding conversions.  As
such, it wraps the Unicode::String, Unicode::Map8, Unicode::Map and
Jcode modules in a standardized and simple API.
This also provides general character set conversion operation based
on UTF8 - it is possible to convert between any two compatible and
supported character sets via a simple two step chaining of
As with most things Perlish - if you give it a few big chunks of text
to chew on instead of lots of small ones it will handle many more
characters per second.
By design, it can be easily extended to encompass any new charset
encoding conversion modules that arrive on the scene.
