These functions convert strings between encodings.
They aim to serve as a more portable and faster replacement

Note that some issues might occur if

UTF-16 or UTF-32, as the output strings may have embedded NULs.
In such cases, please use

In the current version of stringi, if an incorrect code point is found
on input, it is replaced with the default (for that target encoding)
'missing/erroneous' character (with a warning), e.g.,
the SUBSTITUTE character (U+001A) or the REPLACEMENT one (U+FFFD).
Occurrences thereof can be located in the output string to diagnose
the problematic sequences, e.g., by calling:
Because of the way this function is currently implemented, maximal size of a single string to be converted cannot exceed ~0.67 GB.
then a character vector with encoded strings (and appropriate
encoding marks) is returned.
Otherwise, a list of raw vectors is produced.
