Description

ScanRunes is a split function for a Scanner that returns each UTF-8-encoded rune as a token. The sequence of runes returned is equivalent to that from a range loop over the input as a string, which means that erroneous UTF-8 encodings translate to U+FFFD = "\xef\xbf\xbd". Because of the Scan interface, this makes it impossible for the client to distinguish correctly encoded replacement runes from encoding errors.
