NAME ^

Encode::CN - China-based Chinese Encodings

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Encode::CN;
    $euc_cn = encode("euc-cn", $utf8);
    $utf8   = encode("euc-cn", $euc_cn);

DESCRIPTION ^

This module implements China-based Chinese charset encodings. Encodings supported are as follows.

  euc-cn        EUC (Extended Unix Character)
  gb2312        The raw (low-bit) GB2312 character map
  gb12345       Traditional chinese counterpart to GB2312 (raw)
  iso-ir-165    GB2312 + GB6345 + GB8565 + additions
  cp936         Code Page 936, also known as GBK (Extended GuoBiao)
  hz            7-bit escaped GB2312 encoding

To find how to use this module in detail, see Encode.

NOTES ^

Due to size concerns, GB 18030 (an extension to GBK) is distributed separately on CPAN, under the name Encode::HanExtra. That module also contains extra Taiwan-based encodings.

This module will automatically load Encode::HanExtra if you have it on your machine.

BUGS ^

ASCII part (0x00-0x7f) is preserved for all encodings, even though it conflicts with mappings by the Unicode Consortium. See

http://www.debian.or.jp/~kubota/unicode-symbols.html.en

to find why it is implemented that way.
