    Package for representing text in Ancient Greek, since the fundamental assumption of Unicode that code points belong to a single language is wrong, as is the definition in the ISO 639 standards of a single "Greek" dialect for all Greek "to 1453".

    Package for representing text in Ancient Greek, since the fundamental assumption of Unicode that code points belong to a single language is wrong, as is the definition in the ISO 639 standards of a single "Greek" dialect for all Greek "to 1453".

    Overview

    Classes implementing the GreekString trait define an encoding system for writing some form of ancient Greek with an ordered set of characters drawn from the ASCII character set whenever possible. The CodePointTranscoder object provides a mapping of ASCII character sequences to glyphs taken primarily from the so-called "Greek and Coptic" and "Extended Greek" blocks of Unicode. Using the concrete implementation of the GreekString trait's asciiCompare function, any class extending the GreekString trait can trivially extend Scala's Ordered trait as well.

    JVM vs. Javascript implementation

    The JVM implementation normalizes all Unicode to Form NFC, using standard Java classes. No comparable library exists for Javascript, and it is probable that String comparisons and conversions from ascii to ucode representations of classes implementing the GreekString trait will only work correctly for Unicode that is already normalized to Form NFC.
