Audio::TagLib::ID3v1::StringHandler - A abstraction for the string to data encoding in ID3v1 tags.
ID3v1 should in theory always contain ISO-8859-1 (Latin1) data. In practise it does not. Audio::TagLib by default only supports ISO-8859-1 data in ID3v1 tags.
However by subclassing this class and reimplementing parse() and render() and setting your reimplementation as the default with ID3v1::Tag::setStringHandler() you can define how you would like these transformations to be done.
WARNING It is advisable NOT to write non-ISO-8859-1 data to ID3v1 tags. Please consider disabling the writing of ID3v1 tags in the case that the data is ISO-8859-1.
Decode a string from $data. The default implementation assumes that $data is an ISO-8859-1 (Latin1) character array.
Encode a ByteVector with the data from $s. The default implementation assumes that $s is an ISO-8859-1 (Latin1) string.
WARNING It is recommended that you NOT override this method, but instead do not write an ID3v1 tag in the case that the data is not ISO-8859-1.
None by default.
