cvtenc - file encoding converter


cvtenc [-Encoding encoding] [-EscapeIn yes|NO] [-EscapeOut yes|NO]


Converts a file encoded in a specified or default non-unicode encoding to unicode (UTF16),
or, if the file is already in unicode, converts it to a specified or default non-unicode
encoding. The converted text is printed to standard out. If the filename is a hyphen
then this tool reads from standard input.


-Encoding encoding
Specify non-unicode encoding to be used. The direction of conversion depends on
whether the file given as input is recognized as unicode (from the higher order
bytes). To get a list of available encodings, enter "list" for the encoding. If this
is not specified, the default encoding for the current locale is used.

-EscapeIn YES|NO
Specify '-EscapeIn YES' (the default is 'NO') to parse the input for \u escape
sequences (as in property lists).

-EscapeOut YES|NO
Specify '-EscapeOut YES' (the default is 'NO') to generate \u escape sequences (as in
property lists) in the output. Note, this might produce unexpected results for some

-Unicode IN|OUT
Specify '-Unicode IN' (or '-Unicode OUT') to control the direction of conversion
rather than having the tool guess it on the basis of the content it reads. Using
'-Unicode IN' means that the tool reads UTF16 data and writes C-String data, while
using '-Unicode OUT' merans that the tool reads C-String data and writes UTF16 data.
