Project: Improved support for Unicode (in Haskell tools and libraries)

I've created this page to collect some ideas for improving Unicode support in Haskell. I'm considering applying to do this as a Google Summer of Code project in 2008.

Please feel free to edit this page! I want to get feedback on what would be useful and feasible, what tasks have been done already, links to useful documents and so on.

Earlier work

I've been looking into this problem on and off over the past year or so:


Some project ideas:

  • locale-based charset conversion in GHC
  • Unicode ByteString
  • Unicode ByteString Parsec
  • cabal integration for gettext
  • Documentation (best practices)
