Subject [jira] Commented: (LANG-285) Wish : method unaccent
Date Mon, 16 Oct 2006 02:42:36 GMT
    [ http://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/LANG-285?page=comments#action_12442447 ] 
            
Gary Gregory commented on LANG-285:
-----------------------------------

There is a more Unicode way to do this as is outlined in this discussion:

http://forum.java.sun.com/thread.jspa?threadID=728423&tstart=135

>From what I can tell, you can ask Unicode for the base (=unaccented) version of a given
character. I sounds like sun.text.Normalizer will be made public in Java 6.

> I would like to add a method that replace accented caracter by unaccented one.  For example,
with the input String "L'été où j'ai dû aller à l'île d'Anticosti commenca tôt", the
method would return "L'ete ou j'ai du aller à l'ile d'Anticosti commenca tot".
> I suggest to call that method unaccent and to add it in StringUtils.
> If we cannot covert all case, the first version could only covert iso-8859-1.
> If you are willing to go forward with that idea, I am willing to contribute a patch.
