       gauche-cesconv - convert text from one character encoding scheme to another


       gauche-cesconv [-h] [-f encoding] [-t encoding] [-o outfile] [infile]


       The gauche-cesconv command is a program to convert text from one character encoding scheme
       (CES) to another, using Gauche's character conversion module.  Hence the supported
       character sets are the same as Gauche's.  See the info document of Gauche for more

       There are other commands that provide the same functionality and more, such as iconv(1) or
       nkf(1), but they are not universally available by default.  This command is provided for
       Gauche's external packages to ease the installation and configuration process; for those
       packages, it is certain that gauche-cesconv is available, so they don't need to check
       availability of iconv etc.

       When infile is omitted, the text is read from standard input.


       -f, --from-code=encoding
           Selects input encoding. Can be ´*JP´ to guess the character encoding from japanese
           text, among either ISO2022-JP(-1,2,3), EUCJP, SHIFT_JIS or UTF-8.  If omitted,
           gauche´s native CES is used.

       -h, --help
           Show summary of options.

       -o, --output=outfile
           Place output in file outfile. If omitted the converted text is written to standard

       -t, --to-code=encoding
           Selects output encoding. (see also --from-code)


       gauche-cesconv exits with status 0 on success.


       gauche-package(1), iconv(1)

       The program will be documented fully by the Gauche Developers´ Reference available via the
       info(1) system.
