Package description for 'libidn'

A library for preparing internationalized strings.

 GNU Libidn is an implementation of the Stringprep, Punycode, and IDNA
 specifications defined by the IETF Internationalized Domain Names (IDN)
 working group.
 It is used to prepare internationalized strings (such as domain name
 labels, usernames, and passwords) in order to increase the likelihood that
 string input and string comparison work in ways that make sense for typical
 users throughout the world. The library contains a generic Stringprep
 implementation that does Unicode 3.2 NFKC normalization, mapping and
 prohibition of characters, and bidirectional character handling.  Profiles
 for iSCSI, Kerberos 5, Nameprep, SASL, and XMPP are included. Punycode and
 ASCII Compatible Encoding (ACE) via IDNA are supported.
