There is none, beyond a very hackish one for regular expression
matching via the $KCODE variable (and -K command-line option).  Ruby 2.0
will fix this, hopefully in a wonderful way (I'm talking total coverage,
i.e, strings, io, regexes, and so on), so that character set and
character encoding is handled as transparently as possible (i.e, we as
Ruby programmers don't have to lift a finger),
