Encode::ISO2022 - ISO/IEC 2022 character encoding scheme



  package FooEncoding;
  use base qw(Encode::ISO2022);
    Name => foo-encoding,
    CCS => [ {...CCS one...}, {...CCS two...}, ....]


This module provides a character encoding scheme (CES) switching a set of multiple coded character sets (CCS).

A class method Define() may take following arguments.
Alias => REGEX The regular expression representing alias of this encoding, if any.
Name => STRING The name of this encoding as Encode::Encoding object. Mandatory.
CCS => [ FEATURE, FEATURE, ...] List of features defining CCSs used by this encoding. Mandatory. Each item is a hash reference containing following items.
bytes => NUMBER Number of bytes to represent each character. Default is 1.
cl => BOOLEAN If true value is set, this CCS includes map to/from code points between 0/0 and 1/15. There should be one CCS with this flag to reset broken designation.
dec_only => BOOLEAN If true value is set, this CCS will be used only for decoding.
encoding => STRING | ENCODING Encode::Encoding object used as CCS, or its name. Mandatory.

Encodings used for CCS must provide raw conversion. Namely, they must be stateless and fixed-length conversion over 94^n or 96^n code tables. Encode::ISO2022::CCS lists available CCSs.

g_init => STRING Working set this CCS may be designated to: g0, g1, g2 or g3.

If g_init is set, this CCS will be designated at beginning of coversion implicitly, and at end of conversion explicitly.

If g or g_init is set and neither of ls nor ss is set, this CCS will be invoked when it is designated.

If neither of g, g_init, ls nor ss is set, this CCS is invoked always.

g_seq => STRING Escape sequence to designate this CCS, if it can be designated explicitly.
gr => BOOLEAN If true value is set, this CCS will be invoked to GR using 7-bit conversion table.
ls => STRING
ss => STRING Escape sequence or control character to invoke this CCS, if it should be invoked explicitly.

If ls is set, this CCS will be invoked by locking-shift. If ss is set, this CCS will be invoked by single-shift.

range => STRING Possible range of encoded bytes. General value is \x21-\x7E, \x20-\x7F, \xA1-\xFE or \xA0-\xFF. This is required for multibyte CCSs to detect broken multibyte sequences.
LineInit => BOOLEAN If it is true, designation and invokation states will be initialized at beginning of lines.
SubChar => STRING Unicode string to be used for substitution character.
To know more about use of this module, the source of Encode::ISO2022JP2 may be an example.


This module implements small subset of the features defined by ISO/IEC 2022. Each encoding recognizes only several predefined designation and invokation functions. It can handle limited number of coded character sets. Variable length multibyte coded character sets aren’t supported. And so on.
