A library for working with the properties of Unicode code points, including the general category of a code point, predicates for determining whether a code point is a letter or number character (isLetter and isNumber, for example), and case conversion functions (toUpper, toLower, and toTitle, as well as caseFold for caseless matching).

General functions for working with Strings in terms of CodePoints are found in the Data.String.CodePoints module in the strings library.

The version of the Unicode standard supported by this library can be found in the unicode-version file.


Install unicode with Spago:

spago install unicode
