US-ASCII transliterations of Unicode text
Ported Sean M. Burke's Text::Unidecode Perl module
Use is simple;
require_once '/path/to/utf8_to_ascii/utf8_to_ascii.php';
$utf8 = file_get_contents('/tmp/someutf8.txt');
$ascii = utf8_to_ascii($utf8);
Some notes;
- Make sure you provide is well-formed UTF-8!
- For European languages, it should replace Unicode character
with corresponding ascii characters and produce a readable
result. For other languages, the results will be less
meaningful - it's a "dumb" character for character replacement
True trasliteration is a little more complex than this;
- For any characters for which there's no replacement
character available, a (default) '?' will be inserted. The second
argument can be used to define an alternative replacement char
- Don't panic about all the files in the db subdirectory - they
are not all loaded at once - in fact they are only loaded if they
are needed to convert a given character (i.e. which files get
loaded depends on the input)
