NAME

       icupkg - extract or modify an ICU .dat archive

SYNOPSIS

       icupkg  [  -h,  -?,  --help  ]  [  -tl,  --type  l | -tb, --type b | -te, --type e ] [ -c,
       --copyright | -C, --comment comment ] [ -a, --add list ] [  -r,  --remove  list  ]  [  -x,
       --extract list ] [ -l, --list ] [ -s, --sourcedir source ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [
       -w, --writepkg ] [ -m, --matchmode mode ] infilename [ outfilename ]

DESCRIPTION

       icupkg reads the input ICU .dat package file, modify it according to the options, swap  it
       to  the  desired  platform  properties  (charset  &  endianness), and optionally write the
       resulting ICU .dat package to the output  file.   Items  are  removed,  then  added,  then
       extracted and listed.  An ICU .dat package is written if items are removed or added, or if
       the input and output filenames differ, or if the -w, --writepkg option is set.

       If the input filename is "new" then an empty package is created.  If the  output  filename
       is  missing,  then  it  is  automatically  generated from the input filename. If the input
       filename ends with an l, b, or  e  matching  its  platform  properties,  then  the  output
       filename will contain the letter from the -t, --type option.

       This  tool  can  also  be  used  to just swap a single ICU data file, replacing the former
       icuswap tool. For this mode, provide the infilename (and optional outfilename) for a  non-
       package  ICU  data  file.   Allowed options include -t, -w, -s and -d The filenames can be
       absolute, or relative to the source/dest dir paths.  Other options are not allowed in this
       mode.

OPTIONS

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

       -tl, --type l
              Output  for  little-endian/ASCII  charset  family.  The output type defaults to the
              input type.

       -tb, --type b
              Output for big-endian/ASCII charset family.  The output type defaults to the  input
              type.

       -te, --type e
              Output for big-endian/EBCDIC charset family.  The output type defaults to the input
              type.

       -c,--copyright
              Include the ICU copyright notice in the resulting data.

       -C, --comment comment
              Include the specified comment in the resulting data instead of  the  ICU  copyright
              notice.

       -a, --add list
              Add  items  from  the list to the package. The list can be a single filename with a
              .txt file extension containing a list of item filenames, or  an  ICU  .dat  package
              filename.

       -r, --remove list
              Remove items from the list from the package. The list can be a single filename with
              a .txt file extension containing a list of item filenames, or an ICU  .dat  package
              filename.

       -x, --extract list
              Extract  items  from  the  list from the package. The list can be a single filename
              with a .txt file extension containing a list of item  filenames,  or  an  ICU  .dat
              package filename.

       -m, --matchmode mode
              Set the matching mode for item names with wildcards.

       -s, --sourcedir source
              Set  the  source  directory to source.  The default source directory is the current
              directory.

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

       -l, --list
              List the package items to stdout (after modifying the package).

LIST FILE SYNTAX

       Items  are  listed on one or more lines and separated by whitespace (space+tab).  Comments
       begin with # and are ignored.  Empty  lines  are  ignored.  Lines  where  the  first  non-
       whitespace  character is one of "%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?_ are also ignored to reserve for future
       syntax.

       Items for removal or extraction may contain a single * wildcard character. The  *  matches
       zero  or more characters. If -m, --matchmode noslash is set, then the * character does not
       match the / character.

       Items must be listed relative to the package, and the --sourcedir or  the  --destdir  path
       will  be  prepended.  The  paths  are  only  prepended  to  item filenames while adding or
       extracting items, not to ICU .dat package or list filenames.

       Paths may contain / instead of the platform's file separator character and  are  converted
       as appropriate.
