Perl 5.7.3 and later ships with an adequate set of Chinese encodings,
including the commonly used CP950, CP936 (also known as GBK),
Big5 (alias for Big5-Eten), Big5-HKSCS, EUC-CN, HZ, and
ISO-IR-165. However, the numbers of Chinese encodings are staggering,
and a complete coverage will easily increase the size of perl distribution
by several megabytes; hence, this module tries to provide the rest of them.
If you are using Perl 5.8 or later, Encode::CN and Encode::TW will
automatically load the extra encodings for you, so there's no need to
explicitly write "use Encode::HanExtra" if you are using one of them
