Locale::Script - standard codes for script identification

SYNOPSIS

use Locale::Script;

$script  = code2script('phnx');                     # 'Phoenician'
$code    = script2code('Phoenician');               # 'Phnx'
$code    = script2code('Phoenician',
                       LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC);        # 115

@codes   = all_script_codes();
@scripts = all_script_names();

DESCRIPTION

The Locale::Script module provides access to standards codes used for identifying scripts, such as those defined in ISO 15924.

Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default ISO 15924 four-letter codes will be used.

SUPPORTED CODE SETS

There are several different code sets you can use for identifying scripts. The ones currently supported are:

alpha

This is a set of four-letter (capitalized) codes from ISO 15924 such as 'Phnx' for Phoenician.

This code set is identified with the symbol LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA.

The Zxxx, Zyyy, and Zzzz codes are not used.

This is the default code set.

numeric

This is a set of three-digit numeric codes from ISO 15924 such as 115 for Phoenician.

This code set is identified with the symbol LOCALE_SCRIPT_NUMERIC.
