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.
