Older Perl modules for Unicode string manipulation


This package provides Unicode::String, which manipulates strings of characters in various Unicode representations, and Unicode::CharName, which maps Unicode characters to official character names.

These modules predate native Unicode support inside Perl. Normally, the integrated Perl Unicode support and modules such as Encode should be used instead of these modules. They are provided primarily for their additional utility functions and to support other Perl code with dependencies on these modules. Be aware that Unicode::CharName only includes Unicode characters up to Unicode 4.1 and the character name tables included with Perl are more complete.
