DESCRIPTION

Text::Unaccent is a module that remove accents from a string. unac_string converts the input string from the specified charset to UTF-16 and call unac_string_utf16 to return the unaccented equivalent. The conversion from and to UTF-16 is done with iconv(1).

Valid values for the $charset argument are character sets known by iconv(1). Under GNU/Linux try iconv --list for a complete list.
