On Monday, April 22nd at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by
Unicode Issues in Perl
Remember ASCII? One page and you know all about it! Unicode’s core
document is 690 easy-reading pages. And then there are 13 annexes...
Issues like Unicode strings, Regular expressions having these, collating
and searching/comparing strings are by no means trivial. Unicode
supports “diacritics”, all those pesky signs such as the German “umlaut”
characters, not to mention our own “ניקוד” and “טעמי המקרא”. When you
search for ‘garçon’, is ‘garcon’ a match? This presentation will try to
introduce the issues involved and will lead to some knowledge about how
to deal with them in Perl.
We meet in Taub building, room 6. For instructions see:
