NAME
       Encode::Byte - Single Byte Encodings

SYNOPSIS
	   use Encode qw/encode decode/;
	   $greek = encode("iso-8859-7", $utf8);  # loads Encode::Byte implicitly
	   $utf8  = decode("iso-8859-7", $greek); # ditto

ABSTRACT
       This module implements various single byte encodings.  For most cases it uses \x80-\xff
       (upper half) to map non-ASCII characters.  Encodings supported are as follows.
