This challenge relates to data expressed under a different representation or language (including encoding, decoding, and processing such data). Some examples of an encoding includes ASCII and UTF-8.
Challenges with the tag encoding involve the encoding and decoding of data under specific rules. There should always be an input and a rule specifying how to convert these inputs.
Examples of usages
- Decode the input based on a specific rule (e.g. Decode an URL string)
- Convert a specific encoding to another encoding (e.g. Japanese Encoding Conversion)
- Encode the input based on a specific rule (e.g. Clock transliterate cipher)
- Sometimes the input will be converted via a rule, modified by a simple rule, and then converted back by the former rule. (e.g. Trifid cipher without keyword)
