                                                             July 1993
              Registration of a Cyrillic Character Set

Status of this Memo

 This memo provides information for the Internet community.  It does
 not specify an Internet standard.  Distribution of this memo is
 unlimited.

Introduction

 Though the proposed character set "koi8-r" is not currently an
 international standard, there is very large user community (including
 Relcom Net) supporting it.  Factually, "koi8-r" is de-facto standard
 for Unix and global network applications in the former Soviet Union.
 This is the reason the Society of Unix User Groups (SUUG) believes
 "koi8-r" should be registered.
 MIME character set name: koi8-r
 Published specification: This standard is unpublished, but based on
 several published standards: GOST 19768-74 (old-koi8), ISO 6937/8
 (not registered) and variations: INIS-cyrillic, ISO 5427.

C language coding table from koi8-r to Unicode (ISO 10646) for the upper half of the code table (the lower half of the table is fully coinciding with ASCII character set)

 unsigned short koi82unicode[128] = {
