This is the set of two-letter (lowercase) codes from ISO 3166-1, such
as tv for Tuvalu.
This is the default code set.
|<B>alpha-3, LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_3B>||This is the set of three-letter (lowercase) codes from ISO 3166-1, such as brb for Barbados. These codes are actually defined and maintained by the U.N. Statistics division.|
This is the set of three-digit numeric codes from ISO 3166-1, such as
064 for Bhutan. These codes are actually defined and maintained by the
U.N. Statistics division.
If a 2-digit code is entered, it is converted to 3 digits by prepending a 0.
|<B>dom, LOCALE_CODE_DOMB>||The IANA is responsible for delegating management of the top level country domains. The country domains are the two-letter (lowercase) codes from ISO 3166 with a few other additions.|

Both of these could be used only to modify the internal data for country codes.
As of 3.10, the internal data for all types of codes can be modified.
The alias_code function is preserved for backwards compatibility, but the following two are identical:
alias_code(ALIAS,CODE [,CODESET]); rename_country_code(CODE,ALIAS [,CODESET]);
and the latter should be used for consistency.
The alias_code function is deprecated and will be removed in the December 2014 release.
<B>Locale::CodesB> The Locale-Codes distribution. <B>Locale::Codes::APIB> The list of functions supported by this module. <B>Locale::SubCountryB> ISO codes for country sub-divisions (states, counties, provinces, etc), as defined in ISO 3166-2. This module is not part of the Locale-Codes distribution, but is available from CPAN in CPAN/modules/by-module/Locale/ http://www.iso.org/iso/home/standards/country_codes.htm Official home page for the ISO 3166 maintenance agency. http://www.iso.org/iso/home/standards/country_codes/iso-3166-1_decoding_table.htm The source of ISO 3166-1 two-letter codes used by this module. http://www.iana.org/domains/root/db/ Official source of the top-level domain names. http://unstats.un.org/unsd/methods/m49/m49alpha.htm The source of the official ISO 3166-1 three-letter codes and three-digit codes.
For some reason, this table is incomplete! Several countries are missing from it, and I cannot find them anywhere on the UN site. I no longer use this as a source of data.
<B>https://www.cia.gov/library/publications/the-world-factbook/appendix/print_appendix-d.htmlB> The World Factbook maintained by the CIA is a potential source of the data. Unfortunately, it adds/preserves non-standard codes, so it is no longer used as a source of data. http://www.statoids.com/wab.html Another unofficial source of data. Currently, it is not used to get data, but the notes and explanatory material were very useful for understanding discrepancies between the sources.
