decode options?
Message ID:
Hi All,


        role Blob

        From Blob
        (Blob) method decode

        Defined as:

        multi method decode(Blob:D: Str:D $encoding = 'UTF-8' --> Str:D)

        Applies an encoding to turn the blob into a Str.

        my Blob $blob = "string".encode('utf-8');
        say $blob.decode('utf-8'); # OUTPUT: «string␤»

        On malformed utf-8 .decode will throw X::AdHoc. To handle
        sloppy utf-8 use utf8-c8.

where are the decode options?  I only see utf-8 and utf8-c8.
Am I blind?

Many thanks,
