Encode::compat - Encode.pm emulation layer
This document describes version 0.07 of Encode::compat, released June 3, 2004.
use Encode::compat; # a no-op for Perl v5.7.1+ use Encode qw(...); # all constants and imports works transparently # use Encode functions as normal
WARNING: THIS IS A PROOF-OF-CONCEPT. Most functions are incomplete. All implementation details are subject to change!
This module provide a compatibility layer for Encode.pm users on perl versions earlier than v5.7.1. It translates whatever call it receives into Text::Iconv, or (in the future) Unicode::MapUTF8 to perform the actual work.
_utf8_off() calls are performed by the method native to the perl version -- 5.6.1 would use
unpack, 5.6.0 uses
Theoretically, it could be backported to 5.005 and earlier, with none of the unicode-related semantics available, and serves only as a abstraction layer above
Unicode::MapUTF8 and possibly other transcoding modules.
Currently, this module only support 5.6.1+, and merely provides the three utility function above (
from_to()), with a very kludgy
FB_HTMLCREF fallback against
