Badger::Codec::Encoding - base class codec for different encodings

    package My::Encoding::utf8;
    use base 'Badger::Codec::Encoding';
    use constant encoding => 'utf8';
    package main;
    my $codec = My::Encoding::utf8->new;
    my $encoded = $codec->encode("...some utf8 data...");
    my $decoded = $codec->decode($encoded);

This module is a subclass of Badger::Codec which itself acts as a base class for various specific encoding modules.

This constant method returns the encoding for the codec. Subclasses are expected to redefine this method to return a string representing their specific encoding.

Method for encoding data. It uses the encoding() method to determine the encoding type and then calls the Encode encode() subroutine to do all the hard work.
    $encoded = $codec->encode($uncoded);

Method for decoding data. It uses the encoding() method to determine the encoding type and then calls the Encode decode() subroutine to do all the hard work.
    $decoded = $codec->decode($encoded);

This method returns a subroutine reference which can be called to encode data.
    my $encoder = $codec->encode;
    $encoded = $encoder->($data);

This method returns a suboroutine reference which can be called to decode data.
    my $decoder = $codec->decode;
    $decoded = $decoder->($data);
