DecodeRune in Go

DecodeRune unpacks the first UTF-8 encoding in p and returns the rune and its width in bytes. If p is empty it returns (RuneError, 0). Otherwise, if the encoding is invalid, it returns (RuneError, 1). Both are impossible results for correct, non-empty UTF-8.

package main

import (

func main() {
	b := []byte("Hello, 世界")

	for len(b) > 0 {
		r, size := utf8.DecodeRune(b)
		fmt.Printf("%c %v\n", r, size)

		b = b[size:]
