makechs - A program that can be used to create additional translation tables for use by JamNNTPd.
makechs <fromchrs> <destchrs> <frommap> [<destmap>]
The *.chs files in the "xlat" and "unicode/xlat" directories are character set translation tables in the GoldED+ format. The files were created from mappings files found at this URL: http://www.unicode.org/Public/MAPPINGS/ Fallback sequences for characters that do not exist in the target charset were taken from Markus Kuhn's transliteration tables found at the URL below: http://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~mgk25/download/transtab.tar.gz If you want to create additional translation tables, you can easily do so using this utility.
A summary of options is included below: <fromchrs> The fidonet name of the charset you want to convert from. <destchrs> The fidonet name of the charset you want to convert to. <frommap> The Unicode mappings file for the source charset. <destmap> The Unicode mappings file for the destination charset. If you don't supply a mappings file, makechs will instead create a chs file that converts the source charset to utf-8. The output of makechs is written to the console and needs to be redirected to the desired file.
