class Uni does Positional[uint32does Stringy { }

Unlike Str, which is made of Grapheme clusters, Uni is string strictly made of Unicode codepoints. That is, base characters and combining characters are separate elements of a Uni instance.

Uni presents itself with a list-like interface of integer Codepoints.

Typical usage of Uni is through one of its subclasses, NFC, NFD, NFKD and NFKC, which represent strings in one of the Unicode Normalization Forms of the same name.

Methods§

method new(*@codes --> Uni:D)

Creates a new Uni instance from the given codepoint numbers.

method list§

method list(Uni:D:)

Returns a Seq of integer codepoints.

method NFC§

method NFC(Uni:D: --> NFC:D)

Returns an NFC (Normal Form Composed)-converted version of the invocant.
