Is there a "pure" Kotlin way to convert a UByteArray into a UTF-8 string? Thanks! Edit: If there's no built-in support for this, can I just convert my array (UByteArray -> ByteArray) and then call
decodeToString
on it?

I don’t think you’ll want to convert from UByte to Byte unless you somehow don’t care about truncation or sign shenanigans

call String(ByteArray, Charset)
but there’s undefined behavior if the array contains invalid sequence

You can reinterpret an UByteArray as a ByteArray (by calling
asByteArray()
on it) and then call
decodeToString()

Hmm, I hadn't seen
asByteArray()
yet. Might be more adequate then the
toByteArray()
I used.
