Remove Perl dependency (gen-unicode-tables.pl, tests/gen-*-txt.pl)
Submitted by Philip Withnall
With most of the rest of the GLib tooling ported to Python, and Python being required for Meson and gtk-doc, it makes sense to drop our remaining Perl tooling: • gen-unicode-tables.pl • tests/gen-casefold-txt.pl • tests/gen-casemap-txt.pl and port them to Python.
It might make sense to get the script to use the XML versions of the Unicode data, rather than the TXT versions, to save some parsing pain:
This is not a high priority, since these scripts are only used occasionally, manually, when there is a Unicode release.
