http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Information_Processing_Standard Certain US States have FIPS codes. You can either get the code for a state or look up a state by its FIPS code:
Decoder.i18n = :en country = Decoder::Countries[:US] state = country[:MA] state.fips # => 25 state = country.by_fips(25) state.to_s # => "Massachusetts"
When adding a new language please use the ISO 639-1 Code 2-letter standard. You can find the appropriate code for a given language here: http://www.loc.gov/standards/iso639-2/php/code_list.php
Note on Patches/Pull Requests
- Fork the project.
- Make your feature addition or bug fix.
- Add tests for it. This is important so I don't break it in a future version unintentionally.
- Commit, do not mess with rakefile, version, or history. (if you want to have your own version, that is fine but bump version in a commit by itself I can ignore when I pull)
- Send me a pull request. Bonus points for topic branches.
