Prev:Encoding descriptors
Next:Encoding and decoding strings

The following words can be used to construct encoded streams. Note that they are usually not used directly, but rather by the stream constructors themselves. Most stream constructors take an encoding descriptor as a parameter and call these constructors internally.
<encoder> ( stream encoding -- newstream )

<decoder> ( stream encoding -- newstream )
