2 Locale-Codes Distribution
3 v2.00
4
5This distribution contains four Perl modules which can be used to process
6ISO codes for identifying languages, countries, scripts,
7and currencies & funds.
8
9 Locale::Language
10 Two letter codes for language identification (ISO 639).
11 For example, 'en' is the code for 'English'.
12
13 Locale::Country
14 Codes for country identification (ISO 3166). This module
15 supports the three different code sets defined by the
16 standard: alpha-2, alpha-3, and numeric codes.
17 For example, 'bo' is the code for 'Bolivia'.
18
19 Locale::Currency
20 Three letter codes for currency and fund identification (ISO 4217).
21 For example, 'sek' is the code for 'Swedish Krona'.
22
23 Locale::Script
24 Codes for script identification (ISO 15924). This module supports
25 the three different code sets defined by the standard:
26 alpha-2, alpha-3, and numeric codes.
27
28To install these modules, you should just have to run the following:
29
30 % perl Makefile.PL
31 % make
32 % make test
33 % make install
34
35The modules are documented using pod. When you "make install", you
36will get three man-pages: Locale::Language, Locale::Country,
37Locale::Currency, Locale::Script.

39The first version of Locale::Currency was written by Michael Hennecke,
40with modifications for inclusion by me. Kudos to Michael.
41
42Please let me know if you experience any problems with these modules,
43or have any ideas for additions.
