UnicodeUtils is a pure Ruby library that provides additional
Unicode string manipulation functions for Ruby 1.9.

Install with RubyGems:

   $ gem install unicode_utils

Online documentation: http://unicode-utils.rubyforge.org/
RubyForge project: http://rubyforge.org/projects/unicode-utils/
Source: http://github.com/lang/unicode_utils

Example code:

    require "unicode_utils"

    UnicodeUtils.name("æ") => "LATIN SMALL LETTER AE"

    # Ruby 1.9 currently doesn't provide Unicode-aware case conversion

    UnicodeUtils.upcase("weiß") => "WEISS"
    UnicodeUtils.upcase("i", :tr) => "Ý"

    UnicodeUtils.downcase("Ümit") =>
"ümit"
New since the 0.1.0 release:

    * upcase/downcase handles language and context specific
      rules now and is a full implementation of Unicode case
      conversion.

    * A couple of predicate functions like lowercase_char?,
      uppercase_char?, ...
