Lingua::ZH::CEDICT::Textfile - Interface for cedict.b5
use Lingua::ZH::CEDICT; # these are the default values; you may omit them (except source) $dict = Lingua::ZH::CEDICT->new(source => "Textfile", filename => "cedict.b5", sourceCharset => "Big5", targetCharset => "UTF-8"); # read the file $dict->init();
This module imports CEDICT from a file, e.g. from the original cedict.b5. It will attempt to do a charset conversion if
targetCharset have a true value and differ.
There are a number of methods you might find useful to work with the data once it is in memory. They are included and described in Lingua::ZH::CEDICT, just in case you want to use them with one of the other interface modules as well.
If you are doing charset conversions (e.g. Big5 to UTF-8), you will need Text::Iconv.
