convert(p1) public

Convert source_string and return destination_string.

source_string is assumed as a part of source. i.e. :partial_input=>true is specified internally. finish method should be used last.

ec = Encoding::Converter.new("utf-8", "euc-jp")
puts ec.convert("\u3042").dump     #=> "\xA4\xA2"
puts ec.finish.dump                #=> ""

ec = Encoding::Converter.new("euc-jp", "utf-8")
puts ec.convert("\xA4").dump       #=> ""
puts ec.convert("\xA2").dump       #=> "\xE3\x81\x82"
puts ec.finish.dump                #=> ""

ec = Encoding::Converter.new("utf-8", "iso-2022-jp")
puts ec.convert("\xE3").dump       #=> "".force_encoding("ISO-2022-JP")
puts ec.convert("\x81").dump       #=> "".force_encoding("ISO-2022-JP")
puts ec.convert("\x82").dump       #=> "\e$B$\"".force_encoding("ISO-2022-JP")
puts ec.finish.dump                #=> "\e(B".force_encoding("ISO-2022-JP")

If a conversion error occur, Encoding::UndefinedConversionError or Encoding::InvalidByteSequenceError is raised. Encoding::Converter#convert doesn’t supply methods to recover or restart from these exceptions. When you want to handle these conversion errors, use Encoding::Converter#primitive_convert.
