NAME

Encode::CN - China-based Chinese Encodings

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



    use Encode qw/encode decode/;
    $euc_cn = encode("euc-cn", $utf8);   # loads Encode::CN implicitly
    $utf8   = decode("euc-cn", $euc_cn); # ditto



DESCRIPTION

This module implements China-based Chinese charset encodings. Encodings supported are as follows.



  Canonical   Alias             Description
  --------------------------------------------------------------------
  euc-cn      /\beuc.*cn$/i     EUC (Extended Unix Character)
          /\bcn.*euc$/i
              /\bGB[-_ ]?2312(?:\D.*$|$)/i (see below)
  gb2312-raw                    The raw (low-bit) GB2312 character map
  gb12345-raw                   Traditional chinese counterpart to
                GB2312 (raw)
  iso-ir-165                    GB2312 + GB6345 + GB8565 + additions
  MacChineseSimp                GB2312 + Apple Additions
  cp936                         Code Page 936, also known as GBK
                (Extended GuoBiao)
  hz                            7-bit escaped GB2312 encoding
  --------------------------------------------------------------------



To find how to use this module in detail, see Encode.

NOTES

Due to size concerns, GB 18030 (an extension to GBK) is distributed separately on CPAN, under the name Encode::HanExtra. That module also contains extra Taiwan-based encodings.

BUGS

When you see charset=gb2312 on mails and web pages, they really mean euc-cn encodings. To fix that, gb2312 is aliased to euc-cn. Use gb2312-raw when you really mean it.

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