Package: wnpp
Severity: wishlist
Owner: Ximin Luo <infinity0@debian.org>

* Package name    : libchardet
  Version         : 1.0.4
  Upstream Author : Joung-Kyun Kim <https://oops.org>
* URL             : https://ftp.oops.org/pub/oops/libchardet/

  Description     : universal charset detection library

libchardet is based on Mozilla Universal Charset Detector library and
detects the character set used to encode data.

The original code was written by Netscape Communications Corporation
for the Mozilla Browser. John Gardiner Myers <jgmyers@proofpoint.com>
packaged this code into the independent Encode-Detect perl module. To
this, libchardet adds a C wrapping API and a library build environment
with libtool, and removes the perl wrapping API.
