2 ChangeLog for Locale-Codes Distribution

42.00 2002-02-17 neilb

6 * Created Locale::Script which provides an interface to the
7 ISO codes for identification of scripts (writing scripts,
8 rather than perl style scripts). The codes are defined
9 by ISO 15924, which is currently in final draft.
10 Thanks to Jarkko for pointing out this new standard.
11 All three code sets are supported, and a test-suite added.
12
13 * Added support for country name variants to Locale::Country,
14 so that
15 country2code('USA')
16 country2code('United States')
17 country2code('United States of America')
18 will all return 'us'.
19 This had been in the LIMITATIONS section since the first version.
20 Patch from TJ Mather <tjmather@tjmather.com> with additional
21 variants from me. Added test-cases for these.
22
23 * Added VERSION to Locale::Constants. Thanks to Jarkko for
24 pointing that it was missing.
25
26 * Should really have bumped major version with previous release,
27 since there was a change to the API.

31 Added Locale::Constants, which defines three symbols
32 for identifying which codeset is being used:
33
34 LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_2
35 LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_3
36 LOCALE_CODE_NUMERIC
37
38 Updated Locale::Country to support all three code sets
39 defined by ISO 3166. This was requested by Keith Wall.
40 I haven't added multiple codeset support to the other
41 modules yet - I'll wait until someone asks for them.

431.05 Feb 2001
44
45 Added Locale::Currency, contribution from Michael Hennecke.
46 Added testsuite for it (t/currency.t) and added testcases
47 to t/all.t for the all_* functions.

50
51 Fixed very minor typos from 1.03!
52
531.03 Dec 2000
54
55 Updated Locale::Country:
56 - fixed spelling of a few countries
57 - added link to a relevant page from CIA world factbook
58
59 Updated Locale::Language:
60 - fixed typo in the documentation (ISO 939 should be 639)
61
621.02 May 2000
63
64 Updated Locale::Country and Locale::Language to reflect changes
65 in the relevant ISO standards. These mainly reflect languages
66 which are new to the relevant standard, and changes in the
67 spelling of some country names.
68
69 Added official URLs for the standards to the SEE ALSO sections
70 of the doc for each module.
71
72 Thanks to Jarkko Hietaniemi for pointing me at the pages
73 with latest versions of ISO 3166 and 639.
74
751.00 March 1998
76
77 Added Locale::Country::_alias_code() so that 'uk' can be added
78 as the code for "United Kingdom", if you want it.
79 This was prompted by Ed Jordan <ed@chronos.net>
80
81 Added a new testsuite for handling this case, and extended the
82 existing test-suite to include testing of the case where
83 'uk' hasn't been defined as a valid code.
