Description Martin Potter 2012-08-06 00:13:44 UTC
According to the documentation at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dh0797c4.aspx, System.Text.Encoder throws ArgumentOutOfRangeExceptions when it should not. From the documentation, an ArgumentOutOfRangeException should be thrown when:

charIndex, charCount, byteIndex, or byteCount is less than zero.
The length of chars - charIndex is less than charCount.
The length of bytes - byteIndex is less than byteCount.

To reproduce, run the following code:

int charsUsed, bytesUsed;
bool completed;
byte [] bytes = new byte [0];

Encoding.UTF8.GetEncoder ().Convert (new char[0], 0, 0, bytes, 0, bytes.Length, true, out charsUsed, out bytesUsed, out completed);


The code runs, charsUsed equals zero, bytesUsed equals zero and completed is true.


Mono throws an ArgumentOutOfRangeException for charIndex.
