NAME

       Encode::KR - Korean Encodings

SYNOPSIS

           use Encode qw/encode decode/;
           $euc_kr = encode("euc-kr", $utf8);   # loads Encode::KR implicitly
           $utf8   = decode("euc-kr", $euc_kr); # ditto

DESCRIPTION

       This module implements Korean charset encodings.  Encodings supported are as follows.

BUGS

       When you see "charset=ks_c_5601-1987" on mails and web pages, they really mean "cp949"
       encodings.  To fix that, the following aliases are set;

         qr/(?:x-)?uhc$/i         => '"cp949"'
         qr/(?:x-)?windows-949$/i => '"cp949"'
         qr/ks_c_5601-1987$/i     => '"cp949"'

       The ASCII region (0x00-0x7f) is preserved for all encodings, even though this conflicts
       with mappings by the Unicode Consortium.
