Description

Hi, there's a typo in the Encoding Class documentation. http://ruby-doc.org/core-2.0/Encoding.html

In the Changing an encoding section, in the example says

string.force_encoding(Encoding::UTF-8)

instead of
string.force_encoding(Encoding::UTF_8)

The current example causes an NameError: uninitialized constant Encoding::UTF error
