[Corpora-List] Buckwalter transcription convert

There are a couple different Perl modules on CPAN for converting between Buckwalter and Unicode:


They each include a mapping table (in one form or another) for Buckwalter-to-Unicode character relations, which would be fairly easy to adapt into a C++ library function. The one I wrote is integrated with Perl's "Encode" module, which supports conversions between Unicode and a vast array of non-Unicode character encodings.

Best regards,
