URI::_punycode - encodes Unicode string in Punycode SYNOPSIS
use URI::_punycode; $punycode = encode_punycode($unicode); $unicode = decode_punycode($punycode); DESCRIPTION
URI::_punycode is a module to encode / decode Unicode strings into Punycode, an efficient encoding of Unicode for use with IDNA. This module requires Perl 5.6.0 or over to handle UTF8 flagged Unicode strings. FUNCTIONS
This module exports following functions by default. encode_punycode $punycode = encode_punycode($unicode); takes Unicode string (UTF8-flagged variable) and returns Punycode encoding for it. decode_punycode $unicode = decode_punycode($punycode) takes Punycode encoding and returns original Unicode string. These functions throw exceptions on failure. You can catch 'em via "eval". AUTHOR

idn - Internationalized Domain Names command line tool SYNOPSIS
Internationalized Domain Name (IDN) convert STRINGS, or standard input. Command line interface to the internationalized domain name library. All strings are expected to be encoded in the preferred charset used by your locale. Use `--debug' to find out what this charset is. You can override the charset used by setting environment variable CHARSET. To process a string that starts with `-', for example `-foo', use `--' to signal the end of parameters, as in `idn --quiet -a -- -foo'. Mandatory arguments to long options are mandatory for short options too. -h, --help Print help and exit -V, --version Print version and exit -s, --stringprep Prepare string according to nameprep profile -d, --punycode-decode Decode Punycode -e, --punycode-encode Encode Punycode -a, --idna-to-ascii Convert to ACE according to IDNA (default mode) -u, --idna-to-unicode Convert from ACE according to IDNA --allow-unassigned Toggle IDNA AllowUnassigned flag (default off) --usestd3asciirules Toggle IDNA UseSTD3ASCIIRules flag (default off) --no-tld Don't check string for TLD specific rules Only for --idna-to-ascii and --idna-to-unicode -n, --nfkc Normalize string according to Unicode v3.2 NFKC -p, --profile=STRING Use specified stringprep profile instead Valid stringprep profiles: `Nameprep', `iSCSI', `Nodeprep', `Resourceprep', `trace', `SASL- prep' --debug Print debugging information --quiet Silent operation AUTHOR
