Tools for dealing with Czech texts in Perl. I will be glad if anybody suggests to make these methods more general, including more languages and/or charsets. Maybe we should put these into the Convert:: namespace?

Download Cstools-3.42.tar.gz, the latest release.

This package includes modules and programs that are usefull when dealing with Czech (and Slovak) texts in Perl.


Implements object for various charset encodings, used for the Czech language -- either as objects, or as direct conversion functions. One of the charsets is tex for things like \v{c}.
Sorts according to Czech sorting conventions, regardless on locale setting. Exports functions czcmp and czsort which can be used in similar way as as Perl's internals cmp and sort.

Programs (command line utilities)

This version of popular charset reencoding utility uses the above mentioned module to convert text between various charsets.
Command line utility which sorts input lines according to rules used in the Czech language.


Download the tar.gz, unpack it, change to the Cstools-* directory. Then do

perl Makefile.PL
make test
make install

or you can use CPAN module and just type "install Cz::Cstocs".

Ideas, bug reports

Any comments or bug reports concerning this module can be send to my e-mail address. Sending message to clpm is OK but send a copy to me since I might miss your post. Please provide as much information as possible, including version of Perl and this module, and mention "Cstocs" in the Subject -- it will help me solve the problem faster.
