Bindings to the ICU library


Haskell bindings to the International Components for Unicode (ICU) libraries. These libraries provide robust and full-featured Unicode services on a wide variety of platforms.

Features include:

  • Both pure and impure bindings, to allow for fine control over efficiency and

ease of use.

  • Breaking of strings on character, word, sentence, and line boundaries.

  • Access to the Unicode Character Database (UCD) of character metadata.

  • String collation functions, for locales where the conventions for

lexicographic ordering differ from the simple numeric ordering of character codes.

  • Character set conversion functions, allowing conversion between Unicode and

over 220 character encodings.

  • Unicode normalization. (When implementations keep strings in a normalized

form, they can be assured that equivalent strings have a unique binary representation.)

  • Regular expression search and replace.
