Text-ICU: Comprehensive support for string manipulation

This package provides the Data.Text.ICU library, for performing complex manipulation of Unicode text. It provides features such as the following:

  • Unicode normalization

  • Conversion to and from many common and obscure encodings


This library is implemented as bindings to the well-respected ICU library, which is not included. The versions of ICU currently supported are 4.0 and newer.
