NAME ^

Lingua::JA::Kana - Kata-Romaji related utilities

VERSION ^

$Id: Kana.pm,v 0.7 2012/08/06 01:56:17 dankogai Exp $

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Lingua::JA::Kana;

    my $hiragana = romaji2hiragana("ohayou");
    my $katakana = romaji2katakana("ohasumi");
    my $romaji   = kana2romaji($str);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module is a simple utility to convert katakana, hiragana, and romaji at ease. This module makes use of utf8 semantics which is introduced in Perl 5.8.0 and became stable enough in Perl 5.8.1 so you need Perl 5.8.1 or better.

Also note that strings in this module must be utf8-flagged. If they are not, you can use Encode to do so.

  use Encode;
  use Lingua::JA::Kana
  my $romaji = kana2romaji(decode_utf8 $octet);

See Encode, perluniintro, and perlunicode for details.
