Based on the unicode package by Henning Thielemann.

This library aims to provide functionality to make working with certain blocks of unicode characters more effective.

Currently the package contains the following modules:

  • Data.Char.Core: a module that defines common data structures;
  • Data.Char.Block: rendering a 2-by-2 block by a matrix of Bools;
  • Data.Char.Braille: a module to render Braille characters with six or eight dot cells;
  • Data.Char.Card: a module to work with playing cards;
  • Data.Char.Chess: a module to render chess pieces (and some variants) in unicode;
  • Data.Char.Combining: combine a character with a (sequence of) combining characters (diacritics, geometrical shapes, etc.);
  • Data.Char.Dice: a module to render die unicode characters;
  • Data.Char.Domino: a module to render domino unicode characters;
  • Data.Char.Frame: typesetting frame elements. Lines of the frames can be Light or Heavy, and there are additional options to use arcs for corners;
  • Data.Char.Math: a set of functions to render mathematical symbols and text, for example in Fraktur, Blackboard bold, etc.
  • Data.Char.Number.Duodecimal: a module to work with duodecimal numbers;
  • Data.Char.Number.Egyptian: a module to render ancient Egyptian numerals;
  • Data.Char.Number.Roman: a module to render Roman numerals; and
  • Data.Char.Small: making use of subscript and superscript in unicode, and for example formatting Ratio objects.

unicode-tricks is safe Haskell

The modules are marked with the {-# LANGUAGE Safe #-} pragma, it thus provides guarantees, for example about not using unsafePerformIO.
