text-icu: Bindings to the ICU library

[ bsd3, data, library, text ] [ Propose Tags ]

Haskell bindings to the International Components for Unicode (ICU) libraries. These libraries provide robust and full-featured Unicode services on a wide variety of platforms.

Features include:

  • Both pure and impure bindings, to allow for fine control over efficiency and ease of use.

  • Breaking of strings on character, word, sentence, and line boundaries.

  • Access to the Unicode Character Database (UCD) of character metadata.

  • String collation functions, for locales where the conventions for lexicographic ordering differ from the simple numeric ordering of character codes.

  • Character set conversion functions, allowing conversion between Unicode and over 220 character encodings.

  • Unicode normalization. (When implementations keep strings in a normalized form, they can be assured that equivalent strings have a unique binary representation.)

  • Regular expression search and replace.

  • Security checks for visually confusable (spoofable) strings.

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

Prerequisites

This library is implemented as bindings to the well-respected ICU library (which is not bundled, and must be installed separately).

Compatibility

Upstream ICU occasionally introduces backwards-incompatible API breaks. This package tries to stay up to date with upstream, and is currently more or less in sync with ICU 55.

Get involved!

Please report bugs via the github issue tracker.

Master Mercurial repository:

  • hg clone http://bitbucket.org/bos/text-icu

There's also a git mirror:

  • git clone git://github.com/bos/text-icu.git

(You can create and contribute changes using either Mercurial or git.)
