       Locale::Codes::Language - standard codes for language identification

	  use Locale::Codes::Language;

	  $lang = code2language('en');	      # $lang gets 'English'
	  $code = language2code('French');    # $code gets 'fr'

	  @codes   = all_language_codes();
	  @names   = all_language_names();

       The "Locale::Codes::Language" module provides access to standard codes
       used for identifying languages, such as those as defined in ISO 639.

       Most of the routines take an optional additional argument which
       specifies the code set to use. If not specified, the default ISO 639
       two-letter codes will be used.

       There are several different code sets you can use for identifying
       languages. A code set may be specified using either a name, or a
       constant that is automatically exported by this module.

       For example, the two are equivalent:

	  $lang = code2language('en','alpha-2');
	  $lang = code2language('en',LOCALE_CODE_ALPHA_2);

       The codesets currently supported are:

       alpha-2, LOCALE_LANG_ALPHA_2
	   This is the set of two-letter (lowercase) codes from ISO 639-1,
	   such as 'he' for Hebrew.  It also includes additions to this set
	   included in the IANA language registry.

	   This is the default code set.

       alpha-3, LOCALE_LANG_ALPHA_3
	   This is the set of three-letter (lowercase) bibliographic codes
	   from ISO 639-2 and 639-5, such as 'heb' for Hebrew.	It also
	   includes additions to this set included in the IANA language

       term, LOCALE_LANG_TERM
	   This is the set of three-letter (lowercase) terminologic codes from
	   ISO 639.
