A charset encoding/decoding library, not unlike GNU libiconv
Written completely in Common Lisp, not using a foreign library.
It strives to achieve decent performance. Most of the encoding/decoding algorithms have been adapted from Clozure CL's source.
Another important goal is reusability. Similarly to SBCL, it defines an interface wherein the algorithms can be reused between a variety of data types so long we're dealing with conversions between octets and unicode code points.
Babel comes with converters between strings and octet vectors but can be easily extended to deal with, e.g., strings and foreign memory, vectors and Closure's runes, etc...
