NAME

App::Uni - command-line utility to find or display Unicode characters

VERSION

version 9.005

SYNOPSIS

    $ uni smiling face
    263A ☺ WHITE SMILING FACE
    263B ☻ BLACK SMILING FACE

    $ uni ☺
    263A ☺ WHITE SMILING FACE

    # Only on Perl 5.14+
    $ uni wry
    1F63C <U+1F63C> CAT FACE WITH WRY SMILE

DESCRIPTION

This module installs a simple program, uni, that helps grepping through the Unicode database included in the current Perl 5 installation.

For information on how to use uni consult the uni documentation.

PERL VERSION SUPPORT

This module has the same support period as perl itself: it supports the two most recent versions of perl. (That is, if the most recently released version is v5.40, then this module should work on both v5.40 and v5.38.)

Although it may work on older versions of perl, no guarantee is made that the minimum required version will not be increased. The version may be increased for any reason, and there is no promise that patches will be accepted to lower the minimum required perl.

NAME

App::Uni - Command-line utility to grep UnicodeData.txt

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

This is a re-implementation of a program written by Audrey Tang in Taiwan. I used that program for years before deciding I wanted to add a few features, which I did by rewriting from scratch.

That program, in turn, was a re-implementation of a same-named program Larry copied to me, which accompanied Audrey for years. However, that program was lost during a hard disk failure, so she coded it up from memory.

Thank-you, Larry, for everything. ♡
