NAME

Text::Shinobi - 忍びいろは (Ninja Alphabet) encoding

SYNOPSIS

use Text::Shinobi qw/shinobi/;

print shinobi('しのび'); # => 𨊂浾⽕紫゙

DESCRIPTION

"Shinobi Iroha" is a method to encrypt message that Ninja used. This substitution cipher maps Japanese Kana characters to Kanji.

Text::Shinobi encoding table is based on 萬川集海 the Ninja technique encyclopedia; compiled in 1676. The exact character table has not been revealed in the book (as strictly confidential). This module adopted table "generally known" in current Ninjalogy.

METHODS

encode()

Text::Shinobi->encode('あいう!'); # 𣘸栬𡋽!

Returns encrypted input text (unicode string). Only Hiragana and Katakana are converts, other characters are left.

$Text::Shinobi::ENCODE

By default, encode() select a Kanji character following rules:

  1. use single character if same shape unicode exists.
  2. viewable in major browser version. (device fonts supported)

So this module's default might change in the future.

You can change encode option by $Text::Shinobi::ENCODE class variable with below constants.

# DUO: double character only
local $Text::Shinobi::ENCODE = Text::Shinobi::DUO;
Text::Shinobi->encode('あいう'); # => ⽊黒⽊⾊⼟⾚

# UTF8MB3: exclude 4 bytes code as utf-8
local $Text::Shinobi::ENCODE = Text::Shinobi::UTF8MB3;
Text::Shinobi->encode('あいう'); # => ⽊黒栬⼟⾚
