NAME

       Locale::Codes::LangExt - standard codes for language extension
       identification


SYNOPSIS

          use Locale::Codes::LangExt;

          $lext = code2langext('acm');                 # $lext gets 'Mesopotamian Arabic'
          $code = langext2code('Mesopotamian Arabic'); # $code gets 'acm'

          @codes   = all_langext_codes();
          @names   = all_langext_names();


DESCRIPTION

       This module provides access to standard codes used for identifying
       language extensions, such as those as defined in the IANA language
       registry.

       Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which
       specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default IANA
       language registry codes will be used.


SUPPORTED CODE SETS

       There are several different code sets you can use for identifying
       language extensions. A code set may be specified using either a name,
       or a constant that is automatically exported by this module.

       For example, the two are equivalent:

          $lext = code2langext('acm','alpha');
          $lext = code2langext('acm',LOCALE_LANGEXT_ALPHA);

       The codesets currently supported are:

       alpha
           This is the set of three-letter (lowercase) codes from the IANA
           language registry, such as 'acm' for Mesopotamian Arabic.

           This is the default code set.


ROUTINES

       code2langext(CODE [,CODESET] [,'retired'])
       langext2code(NAME [,CODESET] [,'retired'])
       langext_code2code(CODE ,CODESET ,CODESET2)
       all_langext_codes([CODESET] [,'retired'])
       all_langext_names([CODESET] [,'retired'])
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::rename_langext(CODE ,NEW_NAME [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::add_langext(CODE ,NAME [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::delete_langext(CODE [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::add_langext_alias(NAME ,NEW_NAME)
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::delete_langext_alias(NAME)
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::rename_langext_code(CODE ,NEW_CODE [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::add_langext_code_alias(CODE ,NEW_CODE
       [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangExt::delete_langext_code_alias(CODE [,CODESET])
           These routines are all documented in the Locale::Codes::API man
           page.
