decode method

String decode (List<int> codeUnits, { bool allowMalformed })

Decodes the UTF-8 codeUnits (a list of unsigned 8-bit integers) to the corresponding string.

If the codeUnits start with the encoding of a unicodeBomCharacterRune, that character is discarded.

If allowMalformed is true the decoder replaces invalid (or unterminated) character sequences with the Unicode Replacement character U+FFFD (�). Otherwise it throws a FormatException.

If allowMalformed is not given, it defaults to the allowMalformed that was used to instantiate this.


String decode(List<int> codeUnits, {bool allowMalformed}) {
  if (allowMalformed == null) allowMalformed = _allowMalformed;
  return new Utf8Decoder(allowMalformed: allowMalformed).convert(codeUnits);
