IANA defines a long list of character-sets which can be used for any internet communication, and to my surprise many of this list are not understood by Encode::Alias. My MailBox email processing automatically translates incoming message bodies into "Perl's internal representation", and this sometimes fails. Not too often, but sometimes. The IANA list can be found at http://www.iana.org/assignments/character-sets The attached script shows the missing aliases. Maybe you can add at least the simpelest definitions. Especially UNICODE-1-1-UTF-7, which simply is UTF7 and used in some email RFCs.

Seems like the attachment is missing. Would you send it to me again? Dan the Maintainer Thereof On Sun Nov 23 16:42:10 2008, MARKOV wrote: Show quoted text

My script still finds 702 character-sets (mostly special abbreviations) which are defined by IANA but not understood in the Encode release 2.35. Most of them are simple to add aliases. -- Regards, MarkOv ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mark Overmeer MSc MARKOV Solutions Mark@Overmeer.net solutions@overmeer.net http://Mark.Overmeer.net http://solutions.overmeer.net
