NAME

MHonArc::UTF8::MhaEncode - UTF-8 based routines for MHonArc

SYNOPSIS

  use MHonArc::UTF8::MhaEncode;

DESCRIPTION

MHonArc::UTF8::MhaEncode provides UTF-8 related routines for use in MHonArc. Implementation of routines are designed to work with non-Unicode aware versions of Perl 5.

This module is generally not accessed directly since it is used by MHonArc::UTF8 when determining what encoding routines it can use based on your perl installation. However, the following shows you how to use it directly:

  <CharsetConverters override>
  plain;   mhonarc::htmlize;
  default; MHonArc::UTF8::MhaEncode::str2sgml; MHonArc/UTF8/MhaEncode.pm
  </CharsetConverters>

  <TextClipFunc>
  MHonArc::UTF8::MhaEncode::clip; MHonArc/UTF8/MhaEncode.pm
  </TextClipFunc>

FUNCTIONS

to_utf8($data, $from_charset, $to_charset)

Converts $data encoded in $from_charset into UTF-8. $to_charset is ignored since it assumed to be utf-8.

str2sgml($data, $charset)

All data passed in is converted to utf-8 with HTML specials converted into entity references.

clip($text, $clip_len, $is_html, $has_tags)

Clip $text to $clip_len number of characters.
