NAME ^

Task::Unicode - Everything needed to work with Unicode data

VERSION ^

This document describes Task::Unicode v0.06.

DESCRIPTION ^

This Task module installs everything needed for working with Unicode and UTF-8 strings as well as a number of modules and utilities to assist in development and debugging. It is not intended to be an all-inclusive bundle of Unicode modules on the CPAN. Instead, it is a collection of the essential and some of the most useful general-purpose modules.

This is an early release of Task::Unicode and the bundled module list is not yet complete. Modules may be added or removed. Please contact the author with suggestions for upcoming releases.

The brief module descriptions are currently taken directly from each module. In the future, these will be slightly expanded and explained for those with less Unicode knowledge.
