pub fn convert_utf16_to_utf8_partial(
    src: &[u16],
    dst: &mut [u8]
) -> (usize, usize)
Expand description

Converts potentially-invalid UTF-16 to valid UTF-8 with errors replaced with the REPLACEMENT CHARACTER with potentially insufficient output space.

Returns the number of code units read and the number of bytes written.

Guarantees that the bytes in the destination beyond the number of bytes claimed as written by the second item of the return tuple are left unmodified.

Not all code units are read if there isn’t enough output space.

Note that this method isn’t designed for general streamability but for not allocating memory for the worst case up front. Specifically, if the input starts with or ends with an unpaired surrogate, those are replaced with the REPLACEMENT CHARACTER.

Matches the semantics of TextEncoder.encodeInto() from the Encoding Standard.


If you want to convert into a &mut str, use convert_utf16_to_str_partial() instead of using this function together with the unsafe method as_bytes_mut() on &mut str.
