piconv

iconv(1), reinvented in perl

SYNOPSIS

Header "SYNOPSIS" 6 piconv [ -f from_encoding] [ -t to_encoding] [ -p| --perlqq| --htmlcref| --xmlcref] [ -C N| -c] [ -D] [ -S scheme] [ -s string|file...] piconv -l piconv -r encoding_alias piconv -h

DESCRIPTION

Header "DESCRIPTION" piconv is perl version of iconv ,a character encoding converter widely available for various Unixen today. This script was primarily a technology demonstrator for Perl 5.8.0, but you can use piconv in the place of iconv for virtually any case.

piconv converts the character encoding of either STDINor files specified in the argument and prints out to STDOUT.

Here is the list of options. Some options can be in short format ( -f) or long ( --from) one.

" -f, --from from_encoding "4 Item "-f,--from from_encoding" Specifies the encoding you are converting from. Unlike iconv , this option can be omitted. In such cases, the current locale is used.

" -t, --to to_encoding "4 Item "-t,--to to_encoding" Specifies the encoding you are converting to. Unlike iconv , this option can be omitted. In such cases, the current locale is used. Therefore, when both -f and -t are omitted, piconv just acts like cat .

" -s, --string string "4 Item "-s,--string string" uses string instead of file for the source of text.

" -l, --list" 4 Item "-l,--list" Lists all available encodings, one per line, in case-insensitive order. Note that only the canonical names are listed; many aliases exist. For example, the names are case-insensitive, and many standard and common aliases work, such as (L"latin1 (R" for (L" ISO-8859 -1 (R", or (L"ibm850 (R" instead of (L"cp850 (R", or (L"winlatin1 (R" for (L"cp1252 (R". See Encode::Supported for a full discussion.

" -r, --resolve encoding_alias "4 Item "-r,--resolve encoding_alias" Resolve encoding_alias to Encode canonical encoding name.

" -C, --check N "4 Item "-C,--check N" Check the validity of the stream if N = 1. When N = -1, something interesting happens when it encounters an invalid character.

" -c" 4 Item "-c" Same as CW(C` -C 1 (C' .

" -p, --perlqq" 4 Item "-p,--perlqq" Transliterate characters missing in encoding to \ x{ HHHH}where HHHHis the hexadecimal Unicode code point.

" --htmlcref" 4 Item "--htmlcref" Transliterate characters missing in encoding to &#NNN; where NNNis the decimal Unicode code point.

" --xmlcref" 4 Item "--xmlcref" Transliterate characters missing in encoding to &#xHHHH; where HHHHis the hexadecimal Unicode code point.

" -h, --help" 4 Item "-h,--help" Show usage.

" -D, --debug" 4 Item "-D,--debug" Invokes debugging mode. Primarily for Encode hackers.

" -S, --scheme scheme "4 Item "-S,--scheme scheme" Selects which scheme is to be used for conversion. Available schemes are as follows:

"from_to" 4 Item "from_to" Uses Encode::from_to for conversion. This is the default.

"decode_encode" 4 Item "decode_encode" Input strings are decode() dthen encode() d.A straight two-step implementation.

"perlio" 4 Item "perlio" The new perlIO layer is used. NI-S 'favorite. You should use this option if you are using UTF-16 and others which linefeed is not $/. Like the -D option, this is also for Encode hackers.
