NAME
       genrb - compile a resource bundle

SYNOPSIS
       genrb [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -V, --version ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -e, --encoding encoding ] [
       -j, --write-java [ encoding ] ] [ -s, --sourcedir source ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [
       -i, --icudatadir directory ] bundle ...

DESCRIPTION
       genrb converts the resource bundle source files passed on the command line to their binary
       form or to a Java source file for use with ICU4J.  The resulting binary files have a  .res
       extension  while resource bundle source files typically have a .txt extension. Java source
       files have a java extension and follow the ICU4J naming conventions.

       It is customary to name the resource bundles by their locale name, i.e.	to  use  a  local
       identifier for the bundle filename, e.g.  ja_JP.txt for Japanese (Japan) data, or root.txt
       for the root bundle.  In any case, genrb will produce a file whose base name is	the  name
       of the locale found in the resource file, not the base name of the resource file itself.

       The binary files can be read directly by ICU, or used by pkgdata(1) for incorporation into
       a larger archive or library.

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

       -V, --version
	      Print the version of genrb and exit.

       -v, --verbose
	      Display extra informative messages during execution.

       -e, --encoding encoding
	      Set the encoding used to read input files to encoding.  The default encoding is the
	      invariant  (subset of ASCII or EBCDIC) codepage for the system (see section INVARI-
	      ANT CHARACTERS).	The encodings UTF-8, UTF-16BE,	and  UTF-16LE  are  automatically
	      detected if a byte order mark (BOM) is present.

       -j, --write-java [ encoding ]
	      Generate	a  Java source code for use with ICU4J. An optional encoding for the Java
	      file can be given.

       -s, --sourcedir source
	      Set the source directory to source.  The default source directory is  specified  by
	      the  environment	variable  ICU_DATA,  or  the  location	set when ICU was built if
	      ICU_DATA is not set.

       -d, --destdir destination
	      Set the destination directory to destination.  The default destination directory is
	      specified  by the environment variable ICU_DATA or is the location set when ICU was
	      built if ICU_DATA is not set.

       -i, --icudatadir directory
	      Look for any necessary ICU data files in directory.  For example,  when  processing
	      collation  overrides,  the  file ucadata.dat must be located.  The default ICU data
	      directory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA.

INVARIANT CHARACTERS
       The invariant character set consists of the following set of characters,  expressed  as	a
       standard  POSIX	regular expression: [a-z]|[A-Z]|[0-9]|_| |+|-|*|/.  This is the set which
       is guaranteed to be available regardless of code page.

ENVIRONMENT
       ICU_DATA  Specifies the directory containing ICU data. Defaults to /usr/share/icu/50.1.2/.
		 Some  tools  in  ICU  depend  on  the presence of the trailing slash. It is thus
		 important to make sure that it is present if ICU_DATA is set.

VERSION
       50.1.2
