-- This generic package provides utility routines for converting from
-- Wide_String or Wide_Wide_String to encoded String using a specified
-- encoding convention, which is supplied as the generic parameter. If
-- this parameter is a known at compile time constant (e.g. a constant
-- defined in System.WCh_Con), the instantiation is specialized so that
-- it applies only to this specified coding.
-- Note: this package is only about encoding sequences of 16- or 32-bit
-- characters into a sequence of 8-bit codes. It knows nothing at all about
-- the character encodings being used for the input Wide_Character and
-- Wide_Wide_Character values, although some of the encoding methods (notably
-- JIS and EUC) have built in assumptions about the range of possible input
-- code values. Most often the input will be Unicode/ISO-10646 as specified by
-- the Ada RM, but this package does not make any assumptions about the
-- character coding, and in the case of UTF-8 all possible code values can be
-- encoded. See also the packages Ada.Wide_[Wide_]Characters.Unicode for
-- unicode specific functions.
-- Note on brackets encoding (WCEM_Brackets). On input, upper half characters
-- can be represented as ["hh"] but the routines in this package will only use
-- brackets encodings for codes higher than 16#FF#, so upper half characters
-- will be output as single Character values.
