NAME
       libidnkit,  libidnkitlite  -  internationalized	domain	name  handling
       libraries

OVERVIEW
       The libidnkit and libidnkitlite libraries support various manipulations
       of internationalized domain names.

       They  are  designed  according to IDNA framework	where each application
       must encode internationalized domain names before passing them  to  the
       resolver.

       To  help	 applications do the operation,	the libraries provide easy-to-
       use, high-level interface for the work.

       Both libraries provide almost the same  API.   The  difference  between
       them  is	 that  libidnkit  internally  uses iconv() function to provide
       encoding	 conversion  from  UTF-8  to  the  local  encoding  (such   as
       iso-8859-1,  usually determined by the current locale), and vise	versa.
       libidnkitlite is	lightweight version of libidnkit.   Since  it  assumes
       the local encoding is UTF-8, it never uses iconv().

       The libraries provides the following functions:

       idn_checkname()
		      Validate an internationzalized domain name.

       idn_comparenames()
		      Compare two internationzalized domain names.

       idn_comparenames2()
		      Compare two internationzalized domain names.

       idn_decodename()
		      Decode an	internationalized domain name.

       idn_decodename2()
		      Decode an	internationalized domain name.

       idn_encodename()
		      Encode an	internationalized domain name.

       idn_nameinit() Initialize libidnkit or libidnkitelite library.

       idn_result_tostring()
		      Return a string corresponding with an error code.

       idn_setlanguage()
		      Set the current language.

       idn_setlocalencoding()
		      Set the local encoding.

       idn_setlocalcheckfile()
		      Set local	check data by reading a	file.

       idn_version_getstring()
		      Get a version string about idnkit.

       idn_version_idnatable()
		      Get a version string about idnkit.

       idn_version_libidn()
		      Get a version string about idnkit.

       idn_version_unicode()
		      Get a version string about idnkit.
