Unicode::Collate::Standard::V3_1_1 - Thin Perl wrapper to allow easy installation of the Unicode collation database that Unicode::Collate uses to sort Unicode data.


use Unicode::Collate::Standard::V3_1_1; use Unicode::Collate;

my $col = Unicode::Collate->new(table => V3_1_1_COLLATION);


Because the Unicode::Collate module does not come with a collation table (e.g. it will cause a run-time error unless someone has manually installed the rules, since Unicode::Collate is part of perl core, it is unlikely that people will see the message to get that file.

This module allows someone who wishes to use the module to require that the collation rules for a particular version of Unicode be installed so that Unicode::Collate does not throw a run time error because the rules are not present.


By default this module exports the subroutine 3_1_1_COLLATION which gives the relative path to the collation rules for that version of Unicode. This is only meaningful to the table argument to Unicode::Collate-new()>.
