NAME

       genccode - generate C or platform specific assembly code from an ICU data file.

SYNOPSIS

       genccode  [  -h,  -?, --help ] [ -a, --assembly name ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ -n,
       --name name ] [ -e, --entrypoint name ] [ -f, --filename name ] [ filename ...  ]

DESCRIPTION

       genccode reads each of the supplied  filename  and  writes  out  a  C  file  containing  a
       compilable definition of the data in the data file.  The C file name is made by taking the
       base name of the data filename, replacing dots  by  underscores,  and  adding  a  .c  file
       extension.

       If  the -a option is used, platform specific assembly code is generated instead of C code.
       Most C compilers will accept both C and assembly files.  Instead  of  writing  a  filename
       with a .c file extension, a filename with a .s will be written instead.

       If genccode is called with no filename it terminates gracefully.

OPTIONS

       -h, -?, --help
              Print help about usage and exit.

       -a, --assembly name
              Output  assembly code instead of C code.  Use -h to see the list of available types
              of assembly to generate and to specify for this option.

       -d, --destdir destination
              Set the destination directory to destination.  The default destination directory is
              the current directory.

       -n, --name name
              Set  the  data  name  to name instead of the default. This name is also used as the
              base name of the output. The default name is made of the icudt prefix, followed  by
              a two-digit version number corresponding to the current version of the ICU release,
              and a single letter indicating the endianness of the data (the letter  b  indicated
              big endian data, and the letter l indicates little endian ones).

       -f, --filename name
              Normally,  an ICU data file such as mydata.icu will be turned into mydata_icu.c and
              mydata_icu.o.  However, if this parameter was set to "somedata", the  output  files
              will be somedata.o and somedata.c, respectively.

       -e, --entrypoint name
              Set  the  data  entry  point (used for linking against the data in a shared library
              form) to name.  The default entry point name is made of the data (set  by  the  -n,
              --name  option)  followed by an underscore and the type of the data (set by the -t,
              --type option).
