NAME
Encode::JP - Japanese Encodings SYNOPSIS
use Encode qw/encode decode/; $euc_jp = encode("euc-jp", $utf8); # loads Encode::JP implicitly $utf8 = decode("euc-jp", $euc_jp); # ditto ABSTRACT
This module implements Japanese charset encodings. Encodings supported are as follows. Canonical Alias Description -------------------------------------------------------------------- euc-jp /euc.*jp$/i EUC (Extended Unix Character) /jp.*euc/i /ujis$/i shiftjis /shift.*jis$/i Shift JIS (aka MS Kanji) /sjis$/i 7bit-jis /jis$/i 7bit JIS iso-2022-jp ISO-2022-JP [RFC1468] = 7bit JIS with all Halfwidth Kana converted to Fullwidth iso-2022-jp-1 ISO-2022-JP-1 [RFC2237] = ISO-2022-JP with JIS X 0212-1990 support. See below MacJapanese Shift JIS + Apple vendor mappings cp932 /windows-31j$/i Code Page 932 = Shift JIS + MS/IBM vendor mappings jis0201-raw JIS0201, raw format jis0208-raw JIS0201, raw format jis0212-raw JIS0201, raw format -------------------------------------------------------------------- DESCRIPTION
To find out how to use this module in detail, see Encode. Note on ISO-2022-JP(-1)? ISO-2022-JP-1 (RFC2237) is a superset of ISO-2022-JP (RFC1468) which adds support for JIS X 0212-1990. That means you can use the same code to decode to utf8 but not vice versa. $utf8 = decode('iso-2022-jp-1', $stream); and $utf8 = decode('iso-2022-jp', $stream); yield the same result but $with_0212 = encode('iso-2022-jp-1', $utf8); is now different from $without_0212 = encode('iso-2022-jp', $utf8 ); In the latter case, characters that map to 0212 are first converted to U+3013 (0xA2AE in EUC-JP; a white square also known as 'Tofu' or 'geta mark') then fed to the decoding engine. U+FFFD is not used, in order to preserve text layout as much as possible. BUGS
The ASCII region (0x00-0x7f) is preserved for all encodings, even though this conflicts with mappings by the Unicode Consortium. SEE ALSO

NAME
Encode::CN - China-based Chinese Encodings SYNOPSIS
use Encode qw/encode decode/; $euc_cn = encode("euc-cn", $utf8); # loads Encode::CN implicitly $utf8 = decode("euc-cn", $euc_cn); # ditto DESCRIPTION
This module implements China-based Chinese charset encodings. Encodings supported are as follows. Canonical Alias Description -------------------------------------------------------------------- euc-cn /euc.*cn$/i EUC (Extended Unix Character) /cn.*euc$/i /GB[-_ ]?2312(?:D.*$|$)/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. See <http://www.debian.or.jp/~kubota/unicode-symbols.html.en> to find out why it is implemented that way. SEE ALSO
