UnicodeUtils 0.2.0 - more Unicode for Ruby 1.9


#1

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?, ...
