NAME

       Locale::Codes::Script - standard codes for script identification


SYNOPSIS

          use Locale::Codes::Script;

          $script  = code2script('phnx');                     # 'Phoenician'
          $code    = script2code('Phoenician');               # 'Phnx'
          $code    = script2code('Phoenician',
                                 LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC);        # 115

          @codes   = all_script_codes();
          @scripts = all_script_names();


DESCRIPTION

       This module provides access to standards codes used for identifying
       scripts, such as those defined in ISO 15924.

       Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which
       specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default ISO 15924
       four-letter codes will be used.


SUPPORTED CODE SETS

       There are several different code sets you can use for identifying
       scripts. 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:

          $script = code2script('phnx','alpha');
          $script = code2script('phnx',LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA);

       The codesets currently supported are:

       alpha, LOCALE_SCRIPT_ALPHA
           This is a set of four-letter (capitalized) codes from ISO 15924
           such as 'Phnx' for Phoenician.  It also includes additions to this
           set included in the IANA language registry.

           The Zxxx, Zyyy, and Zzzz codes are not used.

           This is the default code set.

       num, LOCALE_SCRIPT_NUMERIC
           This is a set of three-digit numeric codes from ISO 15924 such as
           115 for Phoenician.


ROUTINES

       code2script(CODE [,CODESET] [,'retired'])
       script2code(NAME [,CODESET] [,'retired'])
       script_code2code(CODE ,CODESET ,CODESET2)
       all_script_codes([CODESET] [,'retired'])
       all_script_names([CODESET] [,'retired'])
       Locale::Codes::Script::rename_script(CODE ,NEW_NAME [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::Script::add_script(CODE ,NAME [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::Script::delete_script(CODE [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::Script::add_script_alias(NAME ,NEW_NAME)
       Locale::Codes::Script::delete_script_alias(NAME)
       Locale::Codes::Script::rename_script_code(CODE ,NEW_CODE [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::Script::add_script_code_alias(CODE ,NEW_CODE [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::Script::delete_script_code_alias(CODE [,CODESET])
           These routines are all documented in the Locale::Codes::API man
           page.
