I'd like transliterate a UTF-8 text to ASCII.
With iconv(1), I would do
iconv -f UTF-8 -t ASCII//TRANSLIT foo
I've tried using Duncan's iconv library, but it seems to give me more
question marks than iconv(1) would, which seems odd if it's the same
In other words, transliterating
Aonach Mòr is a mountain in the Highlands of Scotland.
On va boire un petit café si ça te dit.
gives me with iconv(1)
Aonach Mor is a mountain in the Highlands of Scotland.
On va boire un petit cafe si ca te dit.
but with my attempts at using Codec.Text.IConv and
examples/hiconv -f utf-8 -t ascii --transliterate, I get
Aonach M?r is a mountain in the Highlands of Scotland.
On va boire un petit caf? si ?a te dit.
Anybody run into this and know what to do?
PS. I'm on Ubuntu 9.04 if it makes any difference...
