// Node.js program to demonstrate the
// stringDecoder.write() Method
  
// Import the string_decoder module
// and get the StringDecoder class
// using object destructuring
const { StringDecoder } = require("string_decoder");
  
// Create a new instance of the decoder
const decoder = new StringDecoder("utf-8");
  
const text_one = Buffer.from("GeeksforGeeks", "utf-8");
let decoded_text = decoder.write(text_one);
console.log("Decoded Text:", decoded_text);
