       Encode::CN - China-based Chinese Encodings

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

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

	 Canonical   Alias	       Description
	 euc-cn      /\beuc.*cn$/i     EUC (Extended Unix Character)
		     /\bGB[-_ ]?2312(?:\D.*$|$)/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.

       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 encod-

       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


       to find out why it is implemented that way.
