Python module to register all supported iconv codecs

Project Description

This module will register GNU iconv supported codecs for usage inside python.

Usage:

Just register the codec you want:

>>> import iconv_codecs
>>> iconv_codecs.register('ansi_x3.110-1983')

Then you can use it:

>>> u'testing'.encode('ansi_x3.110-1983')
'testing'

Alternatively you can use them without registering, by using the iconv prefix:

>>> '\x87'.decode('iconv:CP860')
u'\xe7'
>>> u'testing'.encode('iconv:CSEBCDICFISEA')
'\xa3\x85\xa2\xa3\x89\x95\x87'

To register all python unsupported codecs, just call register() without parameters:

>>> iconv_codecs.register()
>>> u'\xe7'.encode('utf32')
'\xff\xfe\x00\x00\xe7\x00\x00\x00'

That will poll iconv for a list of codecs it supports and register the ones python doesn’t support already.
