utf8gen - Generate UTF-8 output from hexadecimal input
utf8gen [ [-e format1] | [-E format2] ] [-r formatr] [ [-u utf8_format] | -n] [-c] [-s] [-i input_file] [-o output_file]
utf8gen reads a list of hexadecimal ASCII values in the range 0 through 10FFFF, one per line, and prints the UTF-8 encoding of that number as a Unicode code point. Each input line must begin with a hexadecimal number. A string may follow after that, which can be echoed to the output as the "remainder" (see the -r option below). The total input line length, including an ending newline, is limited to 4096 bytes.
-c After the UTF-8 codes are printed, print a space followed by the character that the hexadecimal code point represents. -e Echo the input code point in one format, using the printf(3) format string format1. -E Echo the input code point in two formats, using the printf(3) format string format2. -n Do not print the UTF-8 byte values. This can be useful if only the printed character itself is desired; see the -c option. -r Print the remainder of the input string after the initial hexadecimal digits, using the printf(3) format string formatr. -s Swap the order of output: print the UTF-8 output portion first, then print the input string portion. This can be useful for generating code containing a UTF-8 encoding followed by a comment that contains the input hexadecimal digits. -u Print the UTF-8 encoded value of the input hexadecimal number, as numeric codes for each UTF-8 byte, using the printf(3) format string utf8_format. If no string is specified, a default format of a backslash followed by three octal digits is printed for each byte.
utf8gen -e "0x%04X " -u "\%03o" utf8gen -E "U+%04x = 0%02o = " utf8gen -s -e " /* U+%04X */" -u "\%03o"
Files contain lines that each begin with an ASCII hexadecimal code in the valid Unicode range 0 through 10FFFF, inclusive. This hexadecimal code may optionally be followed by a space followed by an arbitrary string ending with a newline, up to the limit of 4096 bytes per input line. An example line could be the following (with no indent): 41 Letter 'A'
