NAME

     Encode::KR - Korean Encodings

SYNOPSIS

         use Encode qw/encode decode/;
         $euc_kr = encode("euc-kr", $utf8);   # loads Encode::KR implicitly
         $utf8   = decode("euc-kr", $euc_kr); # ditto

DESCRIPTION

     This module implements Korean charset encodings.  Encodings
     supported are as follows.

       Canonical   Alias             Description
       --------------------------------------------------------------------
       euc-kr      /\beuc.*kr$/i     EUC (Extended Unix Character)

       ksc5601-raw                   Korean standard code set (as is)
       cp949       /(?:x-)?uhc$/i
                   /(?:x-)?windows-949$/i
                   /\bks_c_5601-1987$/i

BUGS

     When you see "charset=ks_c_5601-1987" on mails and web
     pages, they really mean "cp949" encodings.  To fix that, the
     following aliases are set;

       qr/(?:x-)?uhc$/i         => '"cp949"'
       qr/(?:x-)?windows-949$/i => '"cp949"'
       qr/ks_c_5601-1987$/i     => '"cp949"'

     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.
