This package is not currently in any snapshots. If you're interested in using it, we recommend adding it to Stackage Nightly. Doing so will make builds more reliable, and allow stackage.org to host generated Haddocks.
This simple library provides a function to flatten non-ASCII European characters into nearest US-ASCII equivalent.
Hackage package: http://hackage.haskell.org/package/ascii-flatten-0.1.0.0
See source for
Data.Char.AsciiFlatten for the character conversions.
The character translation table is derived from this URL: http://yob.id.au/2008/05/08/thinking-sphinx-and-unicode.html
:m + Data.Char.AsciiFlatten ghci> map asciiFlatten "café" "cafe" ghci> map asciiFlatten "Übermensch" "Ubermensch"
When performance matters, use
Data.Text.map :: (Char -> Char) -> Text -> Text
Command line usage
The package also installs a simple command line tool named
use from the command line and in shell scripts:
$ echo café | ascii-flatten cafe
The code for this package is generated using the
