A Unicode encoding scheme suitable for name mangling
use Uni63; my $enc = Uni63::enc('Leberkäse'); my $dec = Uni63::dec($enc);
The 62 alphanumeric ASCII characters encode themselves. A 63rd character
used to mark escape sequences.
The escape character is followed by a single digit, indicating the number of
characters that encode the next Unicode codepoint. Contrary to the module name,
the codepoint is encoded in base-62 with digits
The decoder does not validate its input:
An invalid character or an underscore that is not followed by a valid escape sequence will be passed through, thus re-encoding a decoded string may not round trip.
The numeric value of any escape sequence that follows the given scheme will be passed on to
chr, even if the value lies outside the range of Unicode codepoints.
