NAME

Encode::DosHebrew - DOS Hebrew Encoding

SYNOPSIS

  use Encode;
  use Encode::DosHebrew;
  use File::BOM;

  # Hebrew word for "newspaper"
  my $dosTxt = "\x92\xA0\xFA\xED\x8F\xA7";

  open $outF, ">:utf8:via(File::BOM)", 'unicode.txt'
          or die "can't write: $!\n";
  print $outF decode('DosHebrew', $dosTxt), "\n";
  close $outF;

ABSTRACT

This module implements a DOS 8-bit encoding of Hebrew, which includes vowels (nikud), as well as pointed (dagesh) consonants, in addition to the standard consonants. It is a superset of Code page 862 (which includes only consonants).

Although data files exist that use this "DosHebrew" encoding, its origin is unclear, and there are no known standards which describe it.

BUGS

Only the "decode" function is implemented at this time.
