This is the documentation page for Module:Unicode data

Purpose[+/-]

This module is used for accessing the Unicode character database (version 11.0), derived from files found in http://www.unicode.org/Public/UNIDATA/ .

Functions[+/-]

All of these functions can only be used in a module. For template-invokable functions, see Module:Unicode data/templates.

lookup_name
Look up the name of a code point. Used by Module:character info, Module:character list, Module:Template:also, and Module:mul-domino def.
lookup_image
Look up the image for a codepoint. Used by Module:character info and Module:character list.
enum_blocks
Used in a for in loop in Module:character list to iterate through the array of block ranges.
lookup_plane
Returns the name of the plane to which a codepoint belongs. Unused.
get_block_range
Given a block name, returns the range of codepoints included in the block. Used by Module:character list.
is_valid_pagename
Given a string, returns true or false depending on whether the string can be used as a page title. Used by Module:template link.
add_dotted_circle
Given a string, places a dotted circle before every combining character in the string. Used by Module:category tree/charactercat and Module:grc-utilities.
char_to_script
Given a character or a codepoint, returns the Wiktionary script code for the character, or else "None", using Module:Unicode data/scripts. Used by Module:character info, Module:Template:also, Module:character list, and Module:games.
get_entry_title
Returns the title for the entry on a character, which is a subpage of Unsupported titles for characters that cannot appear in pagenames. See Manual:Page title on the MediaWiki website for more information. Used by Module:character info and Module:character list.

The following functions relate to a codepoint's General Category. They receive a codepoint and return two values: a boolean (which expresses whether the codepoint fulfills the condition) and a string describing the General Category, if the character is in the General Categories of Separator (Z) or Other (C), or the string "assigned". They use Module:Unicode data/control.

is_assigned
Checks whether a codepoint's General Category is not Cn (Other, unassigned). Used by Module:character list.
is_printable
Checks whether a codepoint is printable: that its General Category is not "Other" (C), "Separator, line" (Zl), or "Separator, paragraph" (Zp). Used by Module:character info and Module:character list.
is_whitespace
Checks whether a codepoint's General Category is Zs ("Separator, space"). Used by Module:character list and Module:links/print data.

User:Kephir/Unicode contains scripts which may be helpful in maintaining this database.

Data modules[+/-]

The data used by functions in this module is found on subpages. Most of them were constructed by the scripts given in User:Kephir/Unicode

The name and image data modules (Module:Unicode data/names/xxx and Module:Unicode data/images/xxx) were compiled from UnicodeData.txt. Each one contains, at maximum, code points U+xxx000 to U+xxxFFF. Script error: No such module "User:Erutuon/Unicode".
