mbconv - Character encoding scheme converter
mbconv [options] <file> ...
This is an application of a library to handle multiple octets character encoding: http://pub.ks-and-ks.ne.jp/prog/libmoe/ mainly written for debugging of the library. It reads octet by octet from files given on command line (or standard input if no file is specified), converts character encoding scheme (CES) as specified by command line options (described below), and output to standard output (or a file specified by -t option or -a option). Options -?, -h, --help display summary of options and exits. -a file, --append-to=file output is appended to file. -c converters, --convert-to=converters specifies character encoding conversion. converters must be comma separated list of words described in "Conversion specifiers". -f flags, --flag=flags specifies flags to change behavior of conversion. flags must be comma separated list of words describe in "Flag specifiers". -i, --input succeeding options apply to input stream. -m string, --mime-charset=string mime encoding conforming to RFC2047 is performed. <string> is used as charset name. -n, --line-number line number (>= 1) is inserted to beginning of each line. -o, --output succeeding options apply to output stream. -t file, --to=file output to file (truncated). -w, --width output width of each line. -cs <string>, --charset=string specifies charset name. Some language specifications are also accepted as well as MIME charset names, which are used to restrict candidates of encoding scheme of input stream. Acceptable languages are listed in "Acceptable languages". --format=string specifies output format --which output charset name of each input stream to stderr, in the form file name":" charset name if two or more files are specifed on the command line, or charset name otherwise. --regex=regular expression specifies regeular expression to filter output. Character encoding of regular expression can be specified by putting string of the form "*"charset name"*" at the beginning of the regular expression, otherwise UTF-8. Character encoding of the expression is converted to that of output stream before matching. Conversion specifiers Conversion is applied just before each character is output to stream. Conversion setup is automatically performed based on CES. So in most cases, yo need not to specify converters explicitly. ascii domestic ASCII converted to US-ASCII, ces converted appropriately according to the CES bound to input/output stream, to-ucs converted to Unicode, f2h, full-to-half Fullwidth compatibility characters are converted to corresponding halfwidth ones, h2f, half-to-full Halfwidth compatibility characters are converted to corresponding fullwidth ones, jisx0213 Codepoints in JIS C 6226 or in JIS X 0208 which are bound to no character are converted into JIS X 0213 plane 1, jisx0213-aggressive All codepoints in JIS C 6226 or in JIS X 0208 are converted into JIS X 0213 plane 1, ms-latin1 Unicode characters of code point between 0x80 and 0x9F (both inclusive) are converted to other Unicode characters as if they are characters of those code point in Microsoft Windows Codepage 1252. ucs-to-jis0208-extra, jis0208-to-ucs-extra Converters between some JIS X 0208 and Unicode characters having similar glyphs (by the courtesy of Ambrose Li <firstname.lastname@example.org>). Flag specifiers use-0x28-for-94x94inG0, 28 use "1/11 2/4 2/8 F" instead of "1/11 2/4 F" to designate charsets with final octet 4/0, 4/1, or 4/2 to G0, ac, ascii-at-control escape sequence "1/11 2/8 4/2" is output before every control character, nossl, ignore-7bit-single-shift escape sequence for 7 bit single shift is ignored, dnc, discard-notprefered-char discard characters which CES bound to output stream can not decode. Acceptable languages The following words may be given instead of MIME charset name for input stream. In that case, encoding scheme is automatically detected (hopefully) among succeeding ones. c, cn, china, chinese x-gb-18030-2000, cn-big5, utf-8, or x-euc-tw. j, ja, jp, japan, japanese euc-jp, shift_jis, or utf-8. k, ko, kr, korea, korean euc-kr, x-johab, utf-8, or x-unified-hangul. cjk iso-8859-1, x-gb-18030-2000, cn-big5, x-euc-tw, euc-jp, shift_jis, euc-kr, x-johab, x-unified-hangul, or utf-8.
