3 Using Characters and Strings

3.3 Streams and I/O

Streams map text input into character sets internally and perform the inverse mapping on output. In the external encoding schemes previously supported by Liquid Common Lisp, the external storage required to hold one character was one byte. Characters can now be stored externally as either single-byte or double-byte characters. To support multiple coded character sets, Liquid Common Lisp allows you to specify which of several possible external character encoding schemes is being used. It correctly maps the character data from the external codes to the character objects.
