NAME

       Encode::CN - China-based Chinese Encodings

SYNOPSIS

           use Encode qw/encode decode/;
           $euc_cn = encode("euc-cn", $utf8);   # loads Encode::CN implicitly
           $utf8   = decode("euc-cn", $euc_cn); # ditto

DESCRIPTION

       This module implements China-based Chinese charset encodings.  Encodings supported are as
       follows.

         Canonical   Alias             Description
         --------------------------------------------------------------------
         euc-cn      /\beuc.*cn$/i     EUC (Extended Unix Character)
                 /\bcn.*euc$/i
                     /\bGB[-_ ]?2312(?:\D.*$|$)/i (see below)
         gb2312-raw                    The raw (low-bit) GB2312 character map
         gb12345-raw                   Traditional chinese counterpart to
                       GB2312 (raw)

NOTES

       Due to size concerns, "GB 18030" (an extension to "GBK") is distributed separately on
       CPAN, under the name Encode::HanExtra. That module also contains extra Taiwan-based
       encodings.

BUGS

       When you see "charset=gb2312" on mails and web pages, they really mean "euc-cn" encodings.
       To fix that, "gb2312" is aliased to "euc-cn".  Use "gb2312-raw" when you really mean it.

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