Subject [jira] Closed: (LANG-285) Wish : method unaccent
Date Mon, 14 Dec 2009 07:33:18 GMT


Henri Yandell closed LANG-285.

    Resolution: Fixed

I can't test on 1.5, but hopefully others will be doing this. Worst case I can test as release
time gets nearer, assuming I end up doing the release, as I'll need to find 1.5 by then.

svn ci -m "Adding stripAccents method to StringUtils. It requires JDK 1.6 (and accesses it
via reflection until Lang becomes 1.6 dependent). LANG-285"
Sending        src/java/org/apache/commons/lang3/
Sending        src/test/org/apache/commons/lang3/

Committed revision 890205.

> 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.
