Try to use the system native encoding to represent a character vector

Description

Apply enc2native() to the character vector, and check if enc2utf8() can convert it back without a loss. If it does, return enc2native(x), otherwise return the original vector with a warning.

Usage

native_encode(x)

Arguments

x

A character vector.

Note

On platforms that supports UTF-8 as the native encoding (l10n_info()[['UTF-8']] returns TRUE), the conversion will be skipped.

Examples

library(xfun)
s = intToUtf8(c(20320, 22909))
Encoding(s)

s2 = native_encode(s)
Encoding(s2)
