NAME

Unicode::EastAsianWidth - East Asian Width properties

VERSION

This document describes version 1.10 of Unicode::EastAsianWidth, released October 14, 2007.

SYNOPSIS

    use Unicode::EastAsianWidth;

    $_ = chr(0x2010); # HYPHEN, an ambiguous-width character

    /\p{InEastAsianAmbiguous}/; # True
    /\p{InFullwidth}/;          # False

    {
        local $Unicode::EastAsianWidth::EastAsian = 1;
        /\p{InFullwidth}/;      # True (this only works on Perl 5.8+)
    }

DESCRIPTION

This module provide user-defined Unicode properties that deal with East Asian characters' width status, as specified in http://www.unicode.org/unicode/reports/tr11/.

It exports the following functions to the caller's scope, to be used by Perl's Unicode matching system: InEastAsianFullwidth, InEastAsianHalfwidth, InEastAsianAmbiguous, InEastAsianNarrow InEastAsianWide, InEastAsianNeutral.

In accord to TR11 cited above, two additional context-sensitive properties are exported: InFullwidth (union of Fullwidth and Wide) and InHalfwidth (union of Halfwidth, Narrow and Neutral).

Ambiguous characters are treated by default as part of InHalfwidth, but you can modify this behaviour by assigning a true value to $Unicode::EastAsianWidth::EastAsian.

CAVEATS

Setting $Unicode::EastAsianWidth::EastAsian at run-time only works on Perl version 5.8 or above. Perl 5.6 users must use a BEGIN block to set it before the use statement:

    BEGIN { $Unicode::EastAsianWidth::EastAsian = 1 }
    use Unicode::EastAsianWidth;
