       QTextCodecPlugin - Abstract base for custom QTextCodec plugins

       The QTextCodecPlugin class provides an abstract base for custom QTextCodec plugins.

       The text codec plugin is a simple plugin interface that makes it easy to create custom
       text codecs that can be loaded dynamically into applications.

       Writing a text codec plugin is achieved by subclassing this base class, reimplementing the
       pure virtual functions names(), createForName(), mibEnums() and createForMib(), and
       exporting the class with the Q_EXPORT_PLUGIN macro. See the Qt Plugins documentation for

       See the IANA character-sets encoding file for more information on mime names and mib

       See also Plugins.


QTextCodecPlugin::QTextCodecPlugin ()

       Constructs a text codec plugin. This is invoked automatically by the Q_EXPORT_PLUGIN

QTextCodecPlugin::~QTextCodecPlugin ()

       Destroys the text codec plugin.

       You never have to call this explicitly. Qt destroys a plugin automatically when it is no
       longer used.

QTextCodec * QTextCodecPlugin::createForMib ( int mib ) [pure virtual]

       Creates a QTextCodec object for the mib enum mib.

       (See the IANA character-sets encoding file for more information)

       See also mibEnums().

QTextCodec * QTextCodecPlugin::createForName ( const QString & name ) [pure virtual]

       Creates a QTextCodec object for the codec called name.

       See also names().

QValueList<int> QTextCodecPlugin::mibEnums () const [pure virtual]

       Returns the list of mib enums supported by this plugin.

       See also createForMib().

QStringList QTextCodecPlugin::names () const [pure virtual]

       Returns the list of mime names supported by this plugin.

       See also createForName().
