Crate icu_data[][src]

Expand description

icu-data.rlib is a library that makes available the Unicode Consortium’s ICU (International Components for Unicode) data repository without any C binding to libicu. At present, only the UCM (UniCode Mapping) files (icu-data/charset) are handled.

Originally, this library was going to store the data uncompressed in Rust data structures. However, this led to the library being over 1GB in size, and Cargo required 15GB of memory to compile it. So, we’re storing compressed versions in the library which are decompressed on demand (see documentation of ucm::request_mapping_file).
