Eyal Allweil commented on TEXT-19:

I opened [a new pull request|https://github.com/apache/commons-text/pull/5]. 
Some of Rob's comments are addressed there:

- I removed the doNotEncodeMap data member (the only price is a slightly more 
expensive check when decoding)
- I added a null check for the equals method.
- I added an example of usage to the javadoc
- I took care of the stylistic differences he mentioned

I didn't address the following, which can be discussed:

- Do we want to accommodate non-invertible or non-decodable encodings (e.g. new 
- Do we want to accommodate alphabets over concatenated chars (e.g. new 
- the name of the class

> This is a utility class I wrote for converting from one alphabet to another - 
> for example, from unicode to latin, without using some of the chars in latin. 
> The usage looks like this:
> {code}
> Set<Character> originals; // a, b, c, d
> Set<Character> encoding; // 0, 1, d
> Set<Character> doNotEncode; // d
> AlphabetConverter ac = AlphabetConverter.createConverter(originals, encoding, 
> doNotEncode);
> ac.encode("a"); // 00
> ac.encode("b"); // 01
> ac.encode("c"); // 0d
> ac.encode("d"); // d
> ac.encode("abcd"); // 00010dd
> {code}
> Of course, x.equals(ac.decode(ac.encode(x))) should always be true.
> The implementation provided makes the encodings of fixed length, other than 
> the "do not encode" chars, which remain as they are (length one).
> In addition, in order to make it easier to preserve the encoding scheme, I've 
> added a human-readable toString implementation, and a constructor that can 
> recreate an AlphabetConverter from the encoding map, such that:
> {code}
> AlphabetConverter ac;
> ac.equals(AlphabetConverter.createConverterFromMap(ac.getOriginalToEncoded()));
>  // always should be true
> {code}
