As I have just joined this group over the weekend I am not familiar with
how the submission process works. I would like to offer however extensions I
have made to the perl5.005_55/lib/unicode/ files for the Ethiopic writing
system which is now a part of the Unicode 3.0 standard:
The README.Ethiopic file gives the details.
The utf8 support feels like a new lease on life. I love it! Is there any
intention to extend it beyond regex sequences? I would like also to use
non-ASCII terms for string, array, and subroutine names.
I still struggle to work with regexes on syllabic writing systems in a
"natural" way though "\p" has opened new doors. I have composed a
description of the problem I am facing with Perl in a brief paper prepared
for this group. The initial draft is:
"Developing Amharic Regular Expressions in Perl"
I would appreciate any input into this work.
