On Monday, April 22nd at 18:30, Haifux will gather to hear a talk by 
Meir Guttman:

    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:

Attendance is free, and you are all invited!
