| utf2any |
utf2any translates a file encoded in UTF-7 or UTF-8 (Unicode) into any
7- or 8-bit text format. Currently, mapping tables are supplied for
LaTeX, HTML, iso-8859-1, iso-8859-15 and rfc-1345. These tables don't
provide a complete mapping, but they can be easily extended to personal
Usage: utf2any -7|-8 [-f mapfile] [-v] [-w] [infile]
-7 : Input is UTF-7
-8 : Input is UTF-8
-f : File with definitions of the symbol mappings
-v : Verbose
-w : Warning messages
If multiple -f options are given, the files are processed in turn.
If name of mapfile has no path, it will be search for in:
1. current directory
2. compiled-in default directory
If no -f option is given, a default mapping will be used.
If no infile is given, the program will read from stdin.
Syntax of symbol map file:
Empty lines, and lines starting with a hash (#) are ignored.
Another mapfile can be included:
If filename does not contain a path, it will be searched for in the
1. current directory
2. the same directory as the file this map was included from
A default mapping for a range of characters can be defined as follows:
D first last size format
D first last action
first: Unicode number of first symbol in default range
last: Unicode number of last symbol in default range
size: this should be one of: uchar unsigned ulong
format: a format given to the C printf function to display the symbol.
The format receives one argument: the code number. This number will be
cast to one of:
(unsigned char) if size equals uchar
(unsigned) if size equals unsigned
(long unsigned) if size equals ulong
action: one of:
#ECHO# : print the character as is, only possible for codes up to 255
#SKIP# : don't print anything
#SPACE# : print a space
Numbers can be given as:
Unicode type number: hexadecimal number with prefix U+
octal: number with prefix 0
hexadecimal: number with prefix 0x
Default ranges take lower precedence than explicit codes (see below),
accept in the range 0 to 255, where they overwrite explicit definitions.
To be safe, define all default mappings before explicit mappings.
Explicit mapping, a number followed by a string:
number: a Unicode number, in the same format as with default ranges
action: the same as with default ranges
string: a literal string
| utfcode |
utfcode translates one or more Unicode numbers into UTF-7 and/or UTF-8.
Usage: utfcode [-7|-8] [number...]
-7 : utf-7 only
-8 : utf-8 only
Numbers can be given in the same format as in the mapfiles for utf2any.
