> (as described in [the mailing list|http://mail-archives.apache.org/mod_mbox/commons-dev/201609.mbox/%3c289983494.3057706.1472720010277@mail.yahoo.com%3e])
> This is a utility class I wrote for converting from one alphabet to another - for example,
from unicode to latin, without using some of the chars in latin. The usage looks like this:
> {code}
> Set<Character> originals; // a, b, c, d
> Set<Character> encoding; // 0, 1, d
> Set<Character> doNotEncode; // d
> AlphabetConverter ac = AlphabetConverter.createConverter(originals, encoding, doNotEncode);
> ac.encode("a"); // 00
> ac.encode("b"); // 01
> ac.encode("c"); // 0d
> ac.encode("d"); // d
> ac.encode("abcd"); // 00010dd
> {code}
> Of course, x.equals(ac.decode(ac.encode(x))) should always be true.
> The implementation provided makes the encodings of fixed length, other than the "do not
encode" chars, which remain as they are (length one).
> In addition, in order to make it easier to preserve the encoding scheme, I've added a
human-readable toString implementation, and a constructor that can recreate an AlphabetConverter
from the encoding map, such that:
> {code}
> AlphabetConverter ac;
> ac.equals(AlphabetConverter.createConverterFromMap(ac.getOriginalToEncoded())); // always
should be true
> {code}
