Design and Implementation of a Suite of Chinese Transcoders for Python 2
Thomas Emerson - Basis Technology Corporation
With the release of Python 2.0 in October 2000 Unicode strings became a fundamental datatype in the language. A new module, codecs, provides support for registering new encoding converters to transcode between Unicode and legacy encodings. Codecs are provided for the ISO 8859-n 8-bit encodings, but the Asian encodings are absent.
The Python Codecs project,
It is expected that this framework will scale to support other multibyte 8-bit Asian encodings.
