NAME

uniname-words - look for words in unicode character names

SYNOPSIS

say .uniname for uniname-words<LOVE>;
# LOVE HOTEL
# LOVE LETTER
# I LOVE YOU HAND SIGN

DESCRIPTION

uniname-words is a utility library that exports a single subroutine: uniname-words. This returns a Map with each word (/w+) from the unicode database (active at installation of the module) as a key, and an int32 array of the codepoints that have that word in their name, as the value.

All Unicode reserved codepoints are available under the reserved key: the rest of the name can be deduced from the codepoint value.

INSTALLATION NOTE

Installing (or running this module for the first time after a runtime update) may take up to a minute (or possibly more on slower machines) because the entire unicode database is then checked, allowing it to remain up-to-date across versions of the run-time.
