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.
