Encode::HanDetect - Cross-encoding, cross-variant Chinese decoder
This document describes version 0.01 of Encode::HanDetect, released January 31, 2003.
use Encode; use Encode::HanDetect; use Encode::Guess qw(utf8 latin1); # fallbacks my $utf8 = decode("HanDetect", $data); my $data = encode("HanDetect", $utf8); # this won't work use Encode::HanDetect 'traditional' # auto-convert to traditional
Encode::HanDetect is a thin wrapper around Lingua::ZH::HanDetect, providing the ability to treat any incoming Chinese data equally, regardless of its encoding.
If a string beginning with either
s is specified in the
use line, all incoming data streams will be converted to that variant using Encode::HanConvert.
When Lingua::ZH::HanDetect cannot detect the encoding (most likely because it contains no Chinese characters), it simply falls back to the
Guess encoding provided by Encode::Guess.
If you use
less as pager, setting your
LESSOPEN environment to
"perl -0777 -MEncode::HanDetect=trad -MEncode::Guess=utf8,iso8859-15 /usr/local/bin/piconv -f HanDetect %s > /tmp/less; echo /tmp/less" will automatically convert all Chinese files Traditional Chinese (while leaving non-Chinese text encoded in
utf8 or <iso8859-15> intact), and displayed in the encoding specified by my current locale.
Simplified Chinese users can simply replace the
=trad above to
=simp, or omit it if your terminal can display both variants.
