     Encode::CN - China-based Chinese Encodings


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


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

       Canonical   Alias             Description
       euc-cn      /\beuc.*cn$/i     EUC (Extended Unix Character)
                   /\bGB[-_ ]?2312(?:\D.*$|$)/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
       cp936                         Code Page 936, also known as GBK
                                     (Extended GuoBiao)
       hz                            7-bit escaped GB2312 encoding

     To find how to use this module in detail, see Encode.


     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.


     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

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


     to find out why it is implemented that way.
