Read / write files encoded in UTF-8

Read or write files, assuming they are encoded in UTF-8. read_utf8() is roughly readLines(encoding = 'UTF-8') (a warning will be issued if non-UTF8 lines are found), and write_utf8() calls writeLines(enc2utf8(text), useBytes = TRUE).

Usage
read_utf8(con, error = FALSE)

write_utf8(text, con, ...)

Arguments
con

A connection or a file path.

error

Whether to signal an error when non-UTF8 characters are detected (if FALSE, only a warning message is issued).

text

A character vector (will be converted to UTF-8 via enc2utf8()).

...

Other arguments passed to writeLines() (except useBytes, which is TRUE in write_utf8()).
