       tcs - translate character sets


       tcs [ -slcv ] [ -f ics ] [ -t ocs ] [ file ...  ]


       Tcs  interprets  the named file(s) (standard input default) as a stream of characters from
       the ics character set or format, converts them to runes, and then  converts  them  into  a
       stream  of  characters  from  the ocs character set or format on the standard output.  The
       default value for ics and ocs is utf, the UTF encoding described in utf(6).  The -l option
       lists  the  character  sets  known to tcs.  Processing continues in the face of conversion
       errors (the -s option prevents reporting of these  errors).   The  -c  option  forces  the
       output  to contain only correctly converted characters; otherwise, 0x80 characters will be
       substituted for UTF encoding errors and 0xFFFD characters  will  substituted  for  unknown

       The  -v  option generates various diagnostic and summary information on standard error, or
       makes the -l output more verbose.

       Tcs recognizes an ever changing list of character sets.   In  particular,  it  supports  a
       variety of Russian and Japanese encodings.  Some of the supported encodings are
