Encode::KR - Korean Encodings

use Encode qw/encode decode/; 
$euc_kr = encode("euc-kr", $utf8);   # loads Encode::KR implicitly
$utf8   = decode("euc-kr", $euc_kr); # ditto

This module implements Korean charset encodings. Encodings supported are as follows.

Canonical   Alias             Description
euc-kr      /\beuc.*kr$/i     EUC (Extended Unix Character)
ksc5601-raw                   Korean standard code set (as is)
cp949       /(?:x-)?uhc$/i
                              Code Page 949 (EUC-KR + 8,822 
                              (additional Hangul syllables)
MacKorean                     EUC-KR + Apple Vendor Mappings
johab       JOHAB             A supplementary encoding defined in 
                                           Annex 3 of KS X 1001:1998
iso-2022-kr                   iso-2022-kr                  [RFC1557]

To find how to use this module in detail, see Encode.

When you see "charset=ks_c_5601-1987" on mails and web pages, they really mean "cp949" encodings. To fix that, the following aliases are set;

qr/(?:x-)?uhc$/i         => '"cp949"'
qr/(?:x-)?windows-949$/i => '"cp949"'
qr/ks_c_5601-1987$/i     => '"cp949"'

The ASCII region (0x00-0x7f) is preserved for all encodings, even though this conflicts with mappings by the Unicode Consortium.
