# Converting a List<int> to a String in Dart

I first tried using this:

String.fromCharCodes

But it mangled the UTF-8 encoding, even though the doc mentions something about UTF-16. For example, it mangled:

<literal>亜</literal>

Into:

<literal>äº</literal>

It turns out I should have used this instead:

import 'dart:convert';

utf8.decode(list);
