libucd is a C library interface to the Unicode Character Database, that contains properties of all the Unicode characters.

Unicode is an industry standard whose goal is to provide the means by which text of all forms and languages can be encoded for use by computers.

The establishment of Unicode has involved an ambitious project to replace existing character encoding schemes, many of which are very limited in size and incompatible with multilingual environments.

Unicode has become the largest and most complete character encoding scheme, serving as the dominant such method in the internationalization and localization of computer software.

The standard has been implemented in many recent technologies, including XML, the Java programming language, and modern operating systems.

What's New in This Release:
This release updates the Unicode Character Database to version 5.0.0, and generates both long and short forms of all enumerations in the header file, thus allowing the user to specify either kind.
