idnalias.conf(5)	      File Formats Manual	      idnalias.conf(5)

NAME
       idnalias.conf - encoding	alias file for idnkit

SYNOPSIS
       /usr/local/etc/idnalias.conf

DESCRIPTION
       The  idnalias.conf  file	 defines aliases of encoding names.  It	is lo-
       cated on	/usr/local/etc/idnalias.conf and always	 loaded	 automatically
       as idn2.conf and	.idn2rc.

       When  the idnkit	library	encodes	or decodes an internationalized	domain
       name, it	converts the  domain  name  between  a	local  encoding	 (e.g.
       ISO8859-1)  and Unicode using iconv().  At run time, the	idnkit library
       guesses the local encoding from locale information to  do  the  conver-
       sions, but iconv() may not know the encoding name taken from locale in-
       formation.  Using idnalias.conf,	you can	avoid the trouble.

       The aliases in this file	can be used just as the	real names.  The alias
       file  is	 a  simple  text file, consisting of lines (other than comment
       lines, which begin with ``#'', and empty	lines) of the form:

	   alias-name real-name

       where alias-name	is an alias name to be defined,	and real-name  is  its
       real name or another alias name.	 ``*'' in alias-name has special mean-
       ing. It matches any string, including an	empty string.
