NAME
    Lingua::JA::Kana - Kata-Romaji related utilities

VERSION
    $Id: README,v 0.1 2007/12/08 11:09:30 dankogai Exp $

SYNOPSIS
        use Lingua::JA::Kana;

        my $hiragana = romaji2hiragana("ohayou");
        my $katakana = romaji2katakana("ohasumi");
        my $romaji   = kana2romaji($str);

DESCRIPTION
    This module is a simple utility to convert katakana, hiragana, and
    romaji at ease. This module makes use of utf8 semantics which is
    introduced in Perl 5.8.0 and became stable enough in Perl 5.8.1 so you
    need Perl 5.8.1 or better.

    Also note that strings in this module must be utf8-flagged. If they are
    not, you can use Encode to do so.

      use Encode;
      use Lingua::JA::Kana
      my $romaji = kana2romaji(decode_utf8 $octet);

    See Encode, perluniintro, and perlunicode for details.
