Apache::Filter::HanConvert - Filter between Chinese variant and encodings
This document describes version 0.02 of Apache::Filter::HanConvert, released December 12, 2002.
PerlModule Apache::Filter::HanConvert PerlOutputFilterHandler Apache::Filter::HanConvert PerlSetVar HanConvertFromVariant "traditional"
This module utilizes the Encode::HanConvert module with Apache2's output filtering mechanism, to provide a flexible and customizable solution for serving multiple encoding/variants from the same source documents.
From the settings in "SYNOPSIS", the server would negotiate with the client's browser about their
Accept-Language preference (
zh means Simplified, other
zh-* means Traditional), as well as the preferred
Accept-Charset setting (defaults to
utf8 if nothing was explicitly specified).
Content-Type header will be rewritten to reflect the final encoding used.
If you want to use other encodings, try adding these lines:
PerlSetVar HanConvertFromEncoding "UTF-8" PerlSetVar HanConvertToEncodingTraditional "big5" PerlSetVar HanConvertToEncodingSimplified "gbk"
Finally, if you'd like to dictate it to always convert to a specific variant/encoding, use this:
PerlSetVar HanConvertToVariant "simplified" PerlSetVar HanConvertToEncoding "gbk"
HanConvertFromEncoding config probably could take multiple encodings and apply Encode::Guess to find out the correct source encoding.
Currently this module does not work with
mod_dir, so the server's
DirectoryIndex setting won't be honored. Patches welcome!
