NAME ^

Locale::Codes::LangFam - standard codes for language extension identification

SYNOPSIS ^

   use Locale::Codes::LangFam;

   $lext = code2langfam('apa');                 # $lext gets 'Apache languages'
   $code = langfam2code('Apache languages');    # $code gets 'apa'

   @codes   = all_langfam_codes();
   @names   = all_langfam_names();

DESCRIPTION ^

The Locale::Codes::LangFam module provides access to standard codes used for identifying language families, such as those as defined in ISO 639-5.

Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default ISO 639-5 language family codes will be used.

SUPPORTED CODE SETS ^

There are several different code sets you can use for identifying language families. A code set may be specified using either a name, or a constant that is automatically exported by this module.

For example, the two are equivalent:

   $lext = code2langfam('apa','alpha');
   $lext = code2langfam('apa',LOCALE_LANGFAM_ALPHA);

The codesets currently supported are:

alpha

This is the set of three-letter (lowercase) codes from ISO 639-5 such as 'apa' for Apache languages.

This is the default code set.
