Encode::Arabic::Parkinson - Dil Parkinson's transliteration of Arabic REVISION
$Revision: 179 $ $Date: 2007-01-14 01:23:25 +0100 (Sun, 14 Jan 2007) $ SYNOPSIS
use Encode::Arabic::Parkinson; # imports just like 'use Encode' would, plus more while ($line = <>) { # Dil Parkinson's mapping into the Arabic script print encode 'utf8', decode 'parkinson', $line; } # shell filter of data, e.g. in *n*x systems instead of viewing the Arabic script proper % perl -MEncode::Arabic::Parkinson -pe '$_ = encode "parkinson", decode "utf8", $_' # employing the modes of conversion for filtering and trimming Encode::Arabic::enmode 'parkinson', 'nosukuun', 'LWE xml'; Encode::Arabic::Parkinson->demode(undef, undef, 'strip _'); $decode = "AiqoraLo hRvaA Ol_n~a_S~a bi___OnotibaAhI."; $encode = encode 'parkinson', decode 'parkinson', $decode; # $encode eq "AiqraL hRvaA Aln~aS~a biAntibaAhI." DESCRIPTION
Dil Parkinson's notation is a one-to-one transliteration of the Arabic script for Modern Standard Arabic, using lower ASCII characters to encode the graphemes of the original script. IMPLEMENTATION Similar to that in Encode::Arabic::Buckwalter. EXPORTS & MODES The module exports as if "use Encode" also appeared in the package. The other "import" options are just delegated to Encode and imports performed properly. The conversion modes of this module allow to override the setting of the ":xml" option, in addition to filtering out diacritical marks and stripping off kashida. The modes and aliases relate like this: our %Encode::Arabic::Parkinson::modemap = ( 'default' => 0, 'undef' => 0, 'fullvocalize' => 0, 'full' => 0, 'nowasla' => 4, 'vocalize' => 3, 'nosukuun' => 3, 'novocalize' => 2, 'novowels' => 2, 'none' => 2, 'noshadda' => 1, 'noneplus' => 1, ); enmode ($obj, $mode, $xml, $kshd) demode ($obj, $mode, $xml, $kshd) These methods can be invoked directly or through the respective functions of Encode::Arabic. The meaning of the extra parameters follows from the examples of usage. SEE ALSO
