Standard "encodings" Package
Standard Python encoding modules are stored in this package
Codec modules must have names corresponding to normalized encoding
names as defined in the normalize_encoding() function below, e.g.
'utf-8' must be implemented by the module 'utf_8.py'.
Each codec module must export the following interface:
* getregentry() -> (encoder, decoder, stream_reader, stream_writer)
The getregentry() API must return callable objects which adhere to
the Python Codec Interface Standard.
In addition, a module may optionally also define the following
APIs which are then used by the package's codec search function:
* getaliases() -> sequence of encoding name strings to use as aliases
Alias names returned by getaliases() must be normalized encoding
names as defined by normalize_encoding().
