NAME

Lingua::Translit::Tables - provides transliteration tables

SYNOPSIS

  use Lingua::Translit::Tables qw/:checks/;

  my $truth;

  $truth = translit_supported("ISO 9");
  $truth = translit_reverse_supported("ISO 9");

  use Lingua::Translit::Tables qw/:list/;

  translit_list_supported();

DESCRIPTION

This module is primary used to provide transliteration tables for Lingua::Translit and therefore allows to separate data and algorithm.

Beyond that, it provides routines to check if a given transliteration is supported and allows to print a simple list of supported transliterations along with some meta information.

EXPORTS

No symbols are exported by default.

Use either the routine's name or one of the following tags to import symbols to your namespace.

all

Import all routines.

checks

Import all routines that allow to check if a given transliteration is supported: translit_supported() and translit_reverse_supported().

list

Import translit_list_supported(). (Convenience tag)

ROUTINES

translit_supported(translit_name)

Returns true (1), iff translit_name is supported. False (0) otherwise.

translit_reverse_supported(translit_name)

Returns true (1), iff translit_name is supported and allows reverse transliteration. False (0) otherwise.

translit_list_supported()

Prints a list of all supported transliterations to STDOUT, providing the following information:

  * Name
  * Reversibility
  * Description

The same information is provided in this document as well:
