Lingua::Translit::Tables - provides transliteration tables
use Lingua::Translit::Tables qw/:checks/; my $truth; $truth = translit_supported("ISO 9"); $truth = translit_reverse_supported("ISO 9"); use Lingua::Translit::Tables qw/:list/; translit_list_supported();
This module is primary used to provide transliteration tables for Lingua::Translit and therefore allows to separate data and algorithm.
Beyond that, it provides routines to check if a given transliteration is supported and allows to print a simple list of supported transliterations along with some meta information.
No symbols are exported by default.
Use either the routine's name or one of the following tags to import symbols to your namespace.
Import all routines.
Import all routines that allow to check if a given transliteration is supported: translit_supported() and translit_reverse_supported().
Import translit_list_supported(). (Convenience tag)
Returns true (1), iff translit_name is supported. False (0) otherwise.
Returns true (1), iff translit_name is supported and allows reverse transliteration. False (0) otherwise.
Prints a list of all supported transliterations to STDOUT, providing the following information:
* Name * Reversibility * Description
The same information is provided in this document as well:

In case you want to add your own transliteration tables to Lingua::Translit, have a look at the developer manual included in the distribution. An online version is available at http://www.lingua-systems.com/translit/downloads/.
A template of a transliteration table is provided as well (xml/template.xml) so you can easily start developing.
