Unicode::Char
OO interface to charnames and others

Unicode::Char - OO interface to charnames and others


NAME

Unicode::Char - OO interface to charnames and others


SYNOPSIS


  use Unicode::Char;

  my $u = Unicode::Char->new();

  # prints "KOGAI Dan" in Kanji

  print $u->u5c0f, $u->u98fc, $u->u5f3e, "\n";

  # smiley here

  print $u->white_smiling_face, $u->black_smiling_face, "\n";


DESCRIPTION

This module provides OO interface to Unicode characters.

$u->u()
Returns a character whose Unicode Number is the argument.

  $u->u('5c0f'); # "small" in Kanji

But the following is handier.


  $u->u5c0f;    # same thing but as a method

These methods are generatated on demand.

$u->n()
Returns a character whose Unicode Canonical Name is the argument.

  $u->n('white smiling face');

But as $u->u(), you may prefer the handier version:


  $u->white_smiling_face;

As you many have noticed, these names do not have to be all in caps. Just replace spaces with underscore.

$u->name()
Returns the Unicode Canonical Name of the character.;

  my $name    = $u->name(chr(0x263A)); # WHITE SMILING FACE

$u->names()
Same as above but in list context.

  my (@names) = $u->name("perl"); # ('LATIN SMALL LETTER P',

                                  #  'LATIN SMALL LETTER E',

                                  #  'LATIN SMALL LETTER R',

                                  #  'LATIN SMALL LETTER L')

EXPORT

None.
