Encode::TW
Taiwan-based Chinese Encodings

Encode::TW - Taiwan-based Chinese Encodings


NAME

Encode::TW - Taiwan-based Chinese Encodings


SYNOPSIS


    use Encode qw/encode decode/; 

    $big5 = encode("big5", $utf8); # loads Encode::TW implicitly

    $utf8 = decode("big5", $big5); # ditto


DESCRIPTION

This module implements tradition Chinese charset encodings as used in Taiwan and Hong Kong. Encodings supported are as follows.


  Canonical   Alias             Description

  --------------------------------------------------------------------

  big5-eten   /\bbig-?5$/i      Big5 encoding (with ETen extensions)

              /\bbig5-?et(en)?$/i

              /\btca-?big5$/i

  big5-hkscs  /\bbig5-?hk(scs)?$/i

              /\bhk(scs)?-?big5$/i

                                Big5 + Cantonese characters in Hong Kong

  MacChineseTrad                Big5 + Apple Vendor Mappings

  cp950                         Code Page 950 

                                = Big5 + Microsoft vendor mappings

NOTES

Due to size concerns, EUC-TW (Extended Unix Character), CCCII (Chinese Character Code for Information Interchange), BIG5PLUS (CMEX's Big5+) and BIG5EXT (CMEX's Big5e) are distributed separately on CPAN, under the name the Encode::HanExtra manpage. That module also contains extra China-based encodings.


BUGS

Since the original big5 encoding (1984) is not supported anywhere (glibc and DOS-based systems uses big5 to mean big5-eten; Microsoft uses big5 to mean cp950), a conscious decision was made to alias big5 to big5-eten, which is the de facto superset of the original big5.

The CNS11643 encoding files are not complete. For common CNS11643 manipulation, please use EUC-TW in the Encode::HanExtra manpage, which contains planes 1-7.

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

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

to find out why it is implemented that way.
