I have made a perl module called Unicode::Unihan, a module which makes
accessing the Unihan DB very easily. Readme after my sig.

As for the copyright and such I've read thru the original
Unicode-Unihan-3.2.0 and I concluded I have no problem publicizing this
but if it does infringe any of such, tell me and I'll remove it from

NAME Unicode::Unihan - The Unihan Data Base 3.2

SYNOPSIS use Unicode::Unihan; my $db = new Unicode::Unihan; print join("," => $db->Mandarin("\x{5c0f}\x{98fc}\x{5f3e}"), "\n";

ABSTRACT This module provides a user-friendly interface to the Uni- code Unihan Database 3.2. With this module, the Unihan database is as easy as shown in the SYNOPSIS above.

DESCRIPTION The first thing you do is make the database available. Just say

use Unicode::Unihan; my $db = new Unicode::Unihan;

That's all you have to say. After that, you can access the database via $db->tag($string) where tag is the tag in the Unihan Database, without 'k' prefix.

$data = $db->tag($string) =item @data = $db->tag($string) The first form (scalar context) returns the Unihan Database entry of the first character in $string. The second form (array context) checks the entry for each character in $string.

@data = $db->Mandarin("\x{5c0f}\x{98fc}\x{5f3e}"); # @data is now ('SHAO4 XIAO3','SI4','DAN4')

@data = $db->JapaneseKun("\x{5c0f}\x{98fc}\x{5f3e}"); # @data is now ('CHIISAI KO O','KAU YASHINAU','TAMA HAZUMU HIKU')
