Text-ICU: Comprehensive support for string manipulation

This package provides the Data.Text.ICU library, for performing complex manipulation of Unicode text. It provides features such as the following:

  • Unicode normalization

  • Conversion to and from many common and obscure encodings

Prerequisites

This library is implemented as bindings to the well-respected ICU library (which is not bundled, and must be installed separately).

Compatibility

Upstream ICU occasionally introduces backwards-incompatible API breaks. This package tries to stay up to date with upstream, and is currently more or less in sync with ICU 55.
