NAME

       gensprep   -   compile   StringPrep   data   from   files  filtered  by
       filterRFC3454.pl

SYNOPSIS

       gensprep [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -c, --copyright ] [ -s,
       --sourcedir source ] [ -d, --destdir destination ]

DESCRIPTION

       gensprep  reads  filtered RFC 3454 files and compiles their information
       into a binary form.  The resulting file, <name>.icu, can then  be  read
       directly  by ICU, or used by pkgdata(8) for incorporation into a larger
       archive or library.

       The files read by gensprep are described in the FILES section.

OPTIONS

       -h, -?, --help
              Print help about usage and exit.

       -v, --verbose
              Display extra informative messages during execution.

       -c, --copyright
              Include a copyright notice into the binary data.

       -s, --sourcedir source
              Set  the  source  directory  to  source.   The  default   source
              directory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA.

       -d, --destdir destination
              Set  the  destination  directory  to  destination.   The default
              destination directory is specified by the  environment  variable
              ICU_DATA.

ENVIRONMENT

       ICU_DATA  Specifies  the  directory  containing  ICU  data. Defaults to
                 /usr/share/icu/3.4.1/.  Some  tools  in  ICU  depend  on  the
                 presence  of the trailing slash. It is thus important to make
                 sure that it is present if ICU_DATA is set.

FILES

       The following files are read by gensprep and  are  looked  for  in  the
       source  /misc  for  rfc3454_*.txt  files  and  in  source  /unidata for
       NormalizationCorrections.txt.

       rfc3453_A_1.txt     Contains  the  list  of  unassigned  codepoints  in
                           Unicode version 3.2.0....

       rfc3454_B_1.txt     Contains  the list of code points that are commonly
                           mapped to nothing....

       rfc3454_B_2.txt     Contains the list of mappings  for  casefolding  of
                           code   points   when  Normalization  form  NFKC  is
                           specified....

       rfc3454_C_X.txt     Contains  the  list  of  code   points   that   are
                           prohibited for IDNA.

       NormalizationCorrections.txt
                           Contains    the   list   of   code   points   whose
                           normalization has  changed  since  Unicode  Version
