perl-Unicode-Map - Perl module for mapping charsets from and to utf16 unicode

Website: http://search.cpan.org/dist/Unicode-Map/
License: GPL+ or Artistic
Vendor: Fedora Project
This module converts strings from and to 2-byte Unicode UCS2 format. All
mappings happen via 2 byte UTF16 encodings, not via 1 byte UTF8 encoding.
To convert between UTF8 and UTF16 use Unicode::String.

For historical reasons this module coexists with Unicode::Map8. Please use
Unicode::Map8 unless you need to care for >1 byte character sets, e.g.
chinese GB2312.  Anyway, if you stick to the basic functionality (see
documentation) you can use both modules equivalently.

Practically this module will disappear from earth sooner or later as Unicode
mapping support needs somehow to get into perl's core. If you like to work
on this field please don't hesitate contacting Gisle Aas and check out the
mailing list perl-unicode!
