/p5-Text-Unidecode, Perl5 module that transliterates Unicode to US-ASCII
1.30, Package name:
p5-Text-Unidecode-1.30, Maintainer: pkgsrc-users
It often happens that you have non-Roman text data in Unicode, but you can't
display it -- usually because you're trying to show it to a user via an
application that doesn't support Unicode, or because the fonts you need aren't
accessible. You could represent the Unicode characters as "???????" or
"\15BA\15A0\1610...", but that's nearly useless to the user who actually wants
to read what the text says.
What Text::Unidecode provides is a function, unidecode(...) that takes Unicode
data and tries to represent it in US-ASCII characters (i.e., the universally
displayable characters between 0x00 and 0x7F). The representation is almost
always an attempt at transliteration -- i.e., conveying, in Roman letters, the
pronunciation expressed by the text in some other writing system.

Updated p5-Text-Unidecode to 1.30.
2016-11-26 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org
* Release 1.30
* Many many (forty?) tables were missing the final character! Fixed.
* Minor stuff:
. Added just a few Arabesque things to U+FD__
. Renamed t/00400_just_load_module.t
. This is the first time non-7bit data appears in any Unidecode/x__.pm
files, although it is just in comments. (In x02.pm, x03.pm, xfd.pm)
But this is just THE SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME.
* Oh look, I blinked and a year went by. I've been spending about the
past *two* years trying to think of how Unidecode v2-and-later's data
tables should work.
* TODO: Kill the surrogatey "xD8", "xD9", "xDA", \
and actually handle surrogates (when properly encoded).
* TODO: Inaugurate the (private) Text::Unidecode::Blackbox namespace.

Update to 1.27
2015-10-21 Sean M. Burke email@example.com
* RELEASE 1.27. (Stable.)
The release, 1.25_01, didn't blow up, so this is just
a re-release of it as a normal ("stable") version.
* Minor changes to the documentation. Nothing substantial.
* Release 1.26 had a confusing mistake in the ChangeLog.
2015-10-21 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org
* RELEASE 1.26. Mistake. See above for change notes
between v1.25_01 and v1.27.
2015-10-16 Sean M. Burke email@example.com
* RELEASE 1.25_01.
* !DEVELOPER RELEASE!, OH GOD HELP US ALL!
* Here's a new thing that makes me nervous and hesitant, and that I've
been talking myself into for weeks:
* I've switched to accepting values in the range 0x80-0x9F *
* as if they are the Windows-1252 ("ANSI") characters. *
Previously they had all mapped to emptystring.
Technically, Unicode specifies those codepoints as control characters
that I've never heard of, "C1 Controls"...
U+0087 ESA - End of Selected Area
U+0088 HTS - Character (Horizontal) Tabulation Set
U+0089 HTJ - Character (Horizontal) Tabulation with Justification
( See "C1" in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/C0_and_C1_control_codes )
And Unidecode mapped all of those to emptystring. Now they are treated
as if you fed the Windows-1252 characters, as that is an extremely
common thing to have happen.
So if you feed character value 0x80 to it, it is taken to mean "��"
(which Unidecode then decodes as "EUR", at the moment at least).
(This doesn't interfere with the fact that U+20AC is the proper
Unicode place for the "��" to be found.)
And the smartquotes at 0x91 to 0x94, �� �� �� �� turn into ' ' \
" " so yaaaay!
Note that in theory, according to C1 Controls, 0x85 is "NEL: Next
Line", "Equivalent to CR+LF. Used to mark end-of-line on some IBM
I could map this to \n or \r\n or whatever, but I've never seen 0x85 in
use in the wild, and I never heard anyone complain about my not having
mapped it to "\n" in all the Unidecode versions since the first, in 2001.
So instead, Unidecode takes 0x85 as its Windows-1252 value, the
ellipsis "��" which of course it Unidecodes as "..."
I'm not thrilled with the idea of going off spec but I think this
should be okay, and it has massive DWIM value.
Let's hope I'm not dividing Unicode times infinity by zero and then the
whole universe will disa
That's why I'm making this a developer release. Unless anything
besplodes by November 1st, I'll re-issue this as a stable release.

Add SHA512 digests for distfiles for textproc category
Problems found locating distfiles:
Package cabocha: missing distfile cabocha-0.68.tar.bz2
Package convertlit: missing distfile clit18src.zip
Package php-enchant: missing distfile php-enchant/enchant-1.1.0.tgz
Otherwise, existing SHA1 digests verified and found to be the same on
the machine holding the existing distfiles (morden). All existing
SHA1 digests retained for now as an audit trail.

Update to 1.24
2015-08-28 Sean M. Burke firstname.lastname@example.org
* RELEASE 1.24. Fixing a little (BIG) bug that David Cusimano is a
superstar for having noticed. Ah, what a difference a ";" vs a \
* I'M BACK. After nine months of semi-catastrophic system failures,
and after Voyager-style flybys of a dozen project deadlines... and now
I can somehow try to get back in the swing of things.
* ANOTHER superstar is Mistah Brendan Byrd who said that there are
[ https://rt.cpan.org/Public/Bug/Display.html?id=102357 ] many ports of
Unidecode to other languages and that I should brag about that fact,
and he is very extremely correct, so now the Pod in Unidecode.pm indeed
does just that.
* (I got my distro-building back up and running. WOLVERIIIINES!)
* I'm thinking of having future Unidecode/*.pm data files contain the
canonical Unicode character name for every character as a comment.
Obviously, this would make the dist pretty big. But the
lib/Unidecode/*.pm files is somewhere around a meg. What's a few megs
more?... with the benefit of added clarity? Everyone's a winner!

Update to 1.23
2014-12-07 Sean M. Burke email@example.com
* RELEASE 1.23. Just a bugfix version.
* The bug in question: https://rt.cpan.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=97456
* Thank you very much to superstar Dagfinn Ilmari Mannsaker for noting
it first *and* for providing a patch for a problem that would baffle
"On perls 5.8.8 through 5.12.x, regex matches against UTF-16
surrogate characters emits a fatal "Malformed UTF-8 character"
warning if warnings are enabled. ExtUtils::MakeMaker prior to 6.78
runs the test suite with -w, causing the installation to fail.
The attached patch [which I applied -SMB] disables utf8
warnings while doing the regex substitution and converting the
character number to a character in the test."
And thank you very much to Ricardo Signes and Tim Bunce for reminding
me to actually release this thang! I was stupid and forgot... for

* See notes for 2014-07-25, because this is the first public release
with significant changes since 2001!
