NAME
       Locale::Codes::Script - standard codes for script identification

SYNOPSIS
	  use Locale::Codes::Script;

	  $script  = code2script('phnx');		      # 'Phoenician'
	  $code    = script2code('Phoenician'); 	      # 'Phnx'
	  $code    = script2code('Phoenician',
				 LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC);	      # 115

	  @codes   = all_script_codes();
	  @scripts = all_script_names();

DESCRIPTION
       The "Locale::Codes::Script" module provides access to standards codes used for identifying
       scripts, such as those defined in ISO 15924.

       Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which specifies the code set to
       use. If not specified, the default ISO 15924 four-letter codes will be used.

SUPPORTED CODE SETS
       There are several different code sets you can use for identifying scripts. A code set may
       be specified using either a name, or a constant that is automatically exported by this
       module.

       For example, the two are equivalent:

	  $script = code2script('phnx','alpha');
	  $script = code2script('phnx',LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA);

       The codesets currently supported are:

       alpha, LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA
	   This is a set of four-letter (capitalized) codes from ISO 15924 such as 'Phnx' for
	   Phoenician.	It also includes additions to this set included in the IANA language
	   registry.

	   The Zxxx, Zyyy, and Zzzz codes are not used.

	   This is the default code set.

       num, LOCALE_SCRIPT_NUMERIC
	   This is a set of three-digit numeric codes from ISO 15924 such as 115 for Phoenician.
