ChinesePinyin

Translate chinese hanzi to pinyin.

The dict is borrowed from http://github.com/fayland/perl-lingua-han/tree/master/Lingua-Han-PinYin/

Install

sudo gem install chinese_pinyin

Usage

require 'rubygems'
require 'chinese_pinyin'

Pinyin.t('中国')  => "zhong guo"
Pinyin.t('中国', '-') => "zhong-guo"
Pinyin.t('中国', '') => "zhongguo"
Pinyin.t('你好world') => "ni hao world"

Polyphone Issue

use Words.dat to override default behavior.

by default

Pinyin.t('广州') => "yan zhou"

add file Words.dat

广州|guang zhou

set ENV['WORDS_FILE'] for Words.dat

ENV['WORDS_FILE'] = "Words.dat path"
Pinyin.t('广州') => "guang zhou"
