A library for various character encodings http://code.haskell.org/encoding/

Latest on Hackage:0.8.2

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.

Haskell has excellect handling of unicode, the Char type covers all unicode chars. Unfortunately, there's no possibility to read or write something to the outer world in an encoding other than ascii due to the lack of support for encodings. This library should help with that.


Changes from 0.8 to 0.8.2

* Deprecated support for very old GHCs
* Updated cabal file to differentiate between build dependencies and setup dependencies
* Add upper and lower bounds to build dependencies
* Stack compatibility

Changes from 0.8 to 0.8.1

* Added the ShiftJIS and CP932 encodings

Changes from to 0.8

* GHC-7.10/AMP compatibility

Changes from to

* Flesh out the MacOSRoman encoding, which was missing 33 code points

Changes from 0.7 to

* GHC-7.8 compatibility

Changes from 0.6.7 to 0.7

* the type of ByteSource's fetchAhead method changed to accomodate updates to the binary package

Changes from 0.6.5 to 0.6.7

* Skipped version 0.6.6 due to rogue upload on Hackage
* GHC-7 and HaXml-1.22 compatibility
* add -systemEncoding flag for Windows builds

Changes from 0.6.4 to 0.6.5

* Make package work with >=base- and mtl-2

Changes from 0.6.3 to 0.6.4

* Throw an error when encoding non-ascii chars with ascii
* Fix compilation with mtl-2

Changes from 0.6.2 to 0.6.3

* Use new QuickCheck version 2 for tests
* Fixed UTF16 encoding range

Changes from 0.6.0 to 0.6.1

* Support for many MSDOS codepages
* Show instance for DynEncoding
* More IO functions
* Fancy translation tables for the documentation of auto-generated modules

Changes from 0.5.2 to 0.6.0

* Moved from TemplateHaskell to a custom pre-processor for code-generation.
This is necessary because:
- TemplateHaskell is really slow for large data structures
- TemplateHaskell doesn't yet support the MagicHash extension that is useful for the library
* Use efficient, static data structures for encoding/decoding
* Fixed bug in UTF-8 that could call 'chr' with bad arguments

Changes from 0.5 to 0.5.2

* Export function encodingFromStringExplicit

Changes from 0.4 to 0.5

* Complete rewrite of the Encoding class to allow for
- On-the-fly changing of the encoding while en-/decoding
- Ability to en-/decode from/to any data structure
* A general module to help specify encodings based on ISO 2022
* New encodings:
- JIS X 0201
- JIS X 0208
- ISO 2022-JP
* More test cases

Changes from 0.3 to 0.4

* A new, strict UTF-8 decoder
* Minor bugs fixed in UTF-16 and BootString
* Test cases for UTF-8, UTF-16 and BootString
* Added KOI8U encoding

Changes from 0.2 to 0.3

* Converted to new cabal interface
* Support for GHC 6.8
* Support for new bytestring interface

Changes from 0.1 to 0.2

* Implemented GB18030 encoding
