libunicode-string-perl - Older Perl modules for Unicode string manipulation

Distribution: Debian 8 (Jessie)

Package name: libunicode-string-perl
Package version: 2.09
Package release: 5+b2

Official Mirror:
This package provides Unicode::String, which manipulates strings of characters in various Unicode representations, and Unicode::CharName, which maps Unicode characters to official character names. These modules predate native Unicode support inside Perl. Normally, the integrated Perl Unicode support and modules such as Encode should be used instead of these modules. They are provided primarily for their additional utility functions and to support other Perl code with dependencies on these modules. Be aware that Unicode::CharName only includes Unicode characters up to Unicode 4.1 and the character name tables included with Perl are more complete.

    2012-01-29 - Salvatore Bonaccorso <> libunicode-string-perl (2.09-5) unstable; urgency=low * Team upload. [ Ansgar Burchardt ] * debian/control: Convert Vcs-* fields to Git. [ Salvatore Bonaccorso ] * Bump Debhelper compat level to 9. Adjust versioned Build-Depends on debhelper to (>= 9). * Update debian/copyright file. Update to revision 174 of format specification of DEP5 proposal for machine readable copyright file information. * Add fix-defined-hash-deprecation-warning.patch patch. Fix 'defined(%hash) is deprecated' warning. Thanks to Justin B Rye <> for the patch (Closes: #657144) * Bump Standards-Version to 3.9.2 * Drop Depends on libmime-base64-perl. Dependency for MIME::Base64 is already satisfied by perl package.

    2011-03-06 - Russ Allbery <> libunicode-string-perl (2.09-4) unstable; urgency=low * Team upload. [ gregor herrmann ] * debian/control: Changed: Switched Vcs-Browser field to ViewSVN (source stanza). * debian/control: Added: ${misc:Depends} to Depends: field. * Change my email address. [ Nathan Handler ] * debian/watch: Update to ignore development releases. [ Russ Allbery ] * Remove myself from Uploaders. * Update debhelper compatibility level to V8. - Use debhelper rule minimization. * Remove versioned build dependency on Perl satisfied by oldstable. * Change Debian source package format to 3.0 (quilt). * Rewrite debian/copyright in DEP-5 format. * Add the Unicode Character Database license, since Unicode::CharMap is derived from it. * Expand the long description to note that these modules are older and predate native Unicode support, and the character mapping table is somewhat out of date. Recommend using native facilities instead where possible. * Update standards version to 3.9.1 (no changes required).

    2008-01-25 - Damyan Ivanov <> libunicode-string-perl (2.09-3) unstable; urgency=low [ gregor herrmann ] * debian/rules: delete /usr/share/perl5 only if it exists. [ Damyan Ivanov ] * debian/rules: cleanup + allow overriding of perl being used (by $(PERL)) + use dh_listpackages instead of hard-coded package name + use $(CURDIR) instead of $(shell pwd) + allow disabling build optimation by setting noopt in $DEB_BUILD_OPTIONS + do not ignore test suite errors + use "$@" when touching stamps + use dh_clean for removing stamp files + remove unused dh_installdirs and dh_installman + move dh_installdocs and dh_installchangelogs deom install-stamp to binary-arch target + add dh_testroot to binary-arch target + .PHONY: remove checkroot, add install and build * add README to dh_installdocs, remove debian/docs * debhelper compatibility level 6 * add myself to Uploaders * debian/copyright: update years of copyright

    2007-12-26 - Russ Allbery <> libunicode-string-perl (2.09-2) unstable; urgency=low [ gregor herrmann ] * debian/control: Added: Vcs-Svn field (source stanza); Vcs-Browser field (source stanza); Homepage field (source stanza). Removed: XS- Vcs-Svn fields. * Don't install empty /usr/share/perl5 directory. * Install upstream changelog. * Convert debian/copyright to UTF-8. * Set Standards-Version to 3.7.3 (no changes needed). * Remove lintian override, not needed anymore. [ Frank Lichtenheld ] * debian/control: Remove superfluous quotes around group name. [ Russ Allbery ] * Switch to a dist-based watch file. * Use a URL in debian/copyright. * Capitalize Perl and punctuate the long description better.
