NAME

       unihist - Generate a histogram of the characters in a Unicode file

SYNOPSIS

       unihist ([option flags])

DESCRIPTION

       unihist  generates  a  histogram  of the characters in its input, which must be encoded in
       UTF-8 Unicode. By default, for each character it prints the frequency of the character  as
       a  percentage of the total, the absolute number of tokens in the input, the UTF-32 code in
       hexadecimal, and, if the character is displayable, the  glyph  itself  as  UTF-8  Unicode.
       Command  line flags allow unwanted information to be suppressed.  In particular, note that
       by suppressing the percentages and counts it is possible to generate a list of the  unique
       characters in the input.

       Output is produced ordered by character code. To sort it in descending order of frequency,
       pipe the output into the command:

              sort -k1 -n -r

       By default, unihist handles all of Unicode. To reduce memory usage and increase speed,  it
       may  be  compiled  so as to handle only the Basic Multilingual Plane (plane 0) by defining
       BMPONLY.

COMMAND LINE FLAGS

       -c     Suppress printing of counts and percentages.

       -g     Suppress printing of glyphs.

       -h     Print usage information.

       -u     Suppress printing of the Unicode code as text.

       -v     Print version information.
