NAME

       Locale::Codes::LangFam - standard codes for language extension
       identification


SYNOPSIS

          use Locale::Codes::LangFam;

          $lext = code2langfam('apa');                 # $lext gets 'Apache languages'
          $code = langfam2code('Apache languages');    # $code gets 'apa'

          @codes   = all_langfam_codes();
          @names   = all_langfam_names();


DESCRIPTION

       This module provides access to standard codes used for identifying
       language families, such as those as defined in ISO 639-5.

       Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which
       specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default ISO 639-5
       language family codes will be used.


SUPPORTED CODE SETS

       There are several different code sets you can use for identifying
       language families. A code set may be specified using either a name, or
       a constant that is automatically exported by this module.

       For example, the two are equivalent:

          $lext = code2langfam('apa','alpha');
          $lext = code2langfam('apa',LOCALE_LANGFAM_ALPHA);

       The codesets currently supported are:

       alpha
           This is the set of three-letter (lowercase) codes from ISO 639-5
           such as 'apa' for Apache languages.

           This is the default code set.


ROUTINES

       code2langfam(CODE [,CODESET] [,'retired'])
       langfam2code(NAME [,CODESET] [,'retired'])
       langfam_code2code(CODE ,CODESET ,CODESET2)
       all_langfam_codes([CODESET] [,'retired'])
       all_langfam_names([CODESET] [,'retired'])
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::rename_langfam(CODE ,NEW_NAME [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::add_langfam(CODE ,NAME [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::delete_langfam(CODE [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::add_langfam_alias(NAME ,NEW_NAME)
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::delete_langfam_alias(NAME)
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::rename_langfam_code(CODE ,NEW_CODE [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::add_langfam_code_alias(CODE ,NEW_CODE
       [,CODESET])
       Locale::Codes::LangFam::delete_langfam_code_alias(CODE [,CODESET])
           These routines are all documented in the Locale::Codes::API man
           page.
