MAKECONV(1)				ICU 50.1.2 Manual			      MAKECONV(1)

NAME
       makeconv - compile a converter table

SYNOPSIS
       makeconv [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -c, --copyright ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -d, --destdir destina-
       tion ] convertertable ...

DESCRIPTION
       makeconv converts the ICU converter table convertertable into a binary  file.  The  binary
       file  has  the  same  base name as convertertable but has a .cnv extension (instead of the
       typical .ucm extension of the convertertable file).  This binary file  can  then  be  read
       directly by ICU, or used by pkgdata(1) for incorporation into a larger archive or library.

       The convertertable must be in the ICU ucm (Unicode Codepage Mapping) format in order to be
       understood by makeconv.	The ICU ucm format is similar to the IBM  NLTC	upmap/tpmap/rpmap
       files.	Comments in the convertable are handled as follows. If a comment (starting with a
       `#' sign) that is after some text does contain the fallback indicator `|'  then	only  the
       text  starting  with the `#' sign, and ending before the `|' sign, is ignored.  Otherwise,
       or if the comment is the first thing on the line, the comment runs up to the  end  of  the
       line.  This special handling of comments is to accomodate the practice of putting fallback
       information in comments in the strict IBM NLTC ucmap format.

       Note that new converters will be automatically found by ICU after  their  installation  in
       ICU's  data  directory.	They  do  not need to be listed in the convrtrs.txt(5) converters
       aliases file in order to be available to applications using  ICU.   They  do  need  to  be
       listed there if one wants to give them aliases, or tags, though.

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

       -c, --copyright
	      Include a copyright notice in the binary data.

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

       -d, --destdir destination
	      Set the destination directory to destination.  The default destination directory is
	      specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA.

CAVEATS
       If an existing converter table is changed and recompiled  using	makeconv,  the	resulting
       binary  file must be packaged in the same way that it was packaged initially. For example,
       if converters were grouped together in an archive or a library with pkgdata(1),	then  the
       archive	or  library  must  be rebuilt with the new binary file.  A standalone binary con-
       verter file will not take precedence over a packaged one.

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.
