       Encode::TW - Taiwan-based Chinese Encodings

	   use Encode qw/encode decode/;
	   $big5 = encode("big5", $utf8); # loads Encode::TW implicitly
	   $utf8 = decode("big5", $big5); # ditto

       This module implements tradition Chinese charset encodings as used in Taiwan and Hong
       Kong.  Encodings supported are as follows.

	 Canonical   Alias	       Description
	 big5-eten   /\bbig-?5$/i      Big5 encoding (with ETen extensions)
	 big5-hkscs  /\bbig5-?hk(scs)?$/i
				       Big5 + Cantonese characters in Hong Kong
	 MacChineseTrad 	       Big5 + Apple Vendor Mappings
	 cp950			       Code Page 950
				       = Big5 + Microsoft vendor mappings

       To find out how to use this module in detail, see Encode.

       Due to size concerns, "EUC-TW" (Extended Unix Character), "CCCII" (Chinese Character Code
       for Information Interchange), "BIG5PLUS" (CMEX's Big5+) and "BIG5EXT" (CMEX's Big5e) are
       distributed separately on CPAN, under the name Encode::HanExtra. That module also contains
       extra China-based encodings.

       Since the original "big5" encoding(1984) is not supported anywhere (glibc and DOS-based
       systems uses "big5" to mean "big5-eten"; Microsoft uses "big5" to mean "cp950"), a con-
       scious decision was made to alias "big5" to "big5-eten", which is the de facto superset of
       the original big5.

       The "CNS11643" encoding files are not complete. For common "CNS11643" manipulation, please
       use "EUC-TW" in Encode::HanExtra, which contains planes 1-7.

       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.
