URI::_punycode is a module to encode / decode Unicode strings into Punycode, an efficient encoding of Unicode for use with IDNA.

This module requires Perl 5.6.0 or over to handle UTF8 flagged Unicode strings.


This module exports following functions by default.
  $punycode = encode_punycode($unicode);

These functions throw exceptions on failure. You can catch 'em via "eval".
