NAME

     Encode::CN - China-based Chinese Encodings

SYNOPSIS

         use Encode qw/encode decode/;
         $euc_cn = encode("euc-cn", $utf8);   # loads Encode::CN implicitly
         $utf8   = decode("euc-cn", $euc_cn); # ditto

DESCRIPTION

     This module implements China-based Chinese charset encod-
     ings. Encodings supported are as follows.

       Canonical   Alias             Description
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       euc-cn      /\beuc.*cn$/i     EUC (Extended Unix Character)
                   /\bcn.*euc$/i
                   /\bGB[-_ ]?2312(?:\D.*$|$)/i (see below)
       gb2312-raw                    The raw (low-bit) GB2312 character map
       gb12345-raw                   Traditional chinese counterpart to
                                     GB2312 (raw)
       iso-ir-165                    GB2312 + GB6345 + GB8565 + additions
       MacChineseSimp                GB2312 + Apple Additions

                                     (Extended GuoBiao)
       hz                            7-bit escaped GB2312 encoding

NOTES

     Due to size concerns, "GB 18030" (an extension to "GBK") is
     distributed separately on CPAN, under the name
     Encode::HanExtra. That module also contains extra Taiwan-
     based encodings.

BUGS

     When you see "charset=gb2312" on mails and web pages, they
     really mean "euc-cn" encodings.  To fix that, "gb2312" is
     aliased to "euc-cn". Use "gb2312-raw" when you really mean
     it.

     The ASCII region (0x00-0x7f) is preserved for all encodings,
     even though this conflicts with mappings by the Unicode Con-
     sortium.  See

     <http://www.debian.or.jp/~kubota/unicode-symbols.html.en>

     to find out why it is implemented that way.
