NAME ^

Encode::TW - Taiwan-based Chinese Encodings

SYNOPSIS ^

    use Encode::CN;
    $big5 = encode("big5", $utf8);
    $utf8 = encode("big5", $big5);

DESCRIPTION ^

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

  big5          The original Big5 encoding
  big5-hkscs    Big5 plus Cantonese characters in Hong Kong
  cp950         Code Page 950 (Big5 + Microsoft vendor mappings)

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

NOTES ^

Due to size concerns, EUC-TW (Extended Unix Character) and BIG5PLUS (CMEX's Big5+) are distributed separately on CPAN, under the name Encode::HanExtra. That module also contains extra China-based encodings.

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

BUGS ^

The CNS11643 encoding files are not complete (only the first two planes, 11643-1 and 11643-2, exist in the distribution). For common CNS11643 manipulation, please use EUC-TW in Encode::HanExtra, which contains plane 1-7.

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.
