NAME
gencmn - generate an ICU memory-mappable data file SYNOPSIS
gencmn [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -c, --copyright | -C, --comment comment ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ -n, --name name ] [ -t, --type fileext ] [ -S, --source ] [ -e, --entrypoint name ] maxsize [ listfilename ] DESCRIPTION
gencmn takes a set of files and packages them as an ICU memory-mappable data file. The resulting data file can then be used directly by ICU. gencmn reads a list of files to be packaged from either the supplied listfilename file, or from its standard output. It packages all the files from the list that are not bigger than maxsize bytes, except if maxsize is 0, which indicates that there is no size limit on files. OPTIONS
-h, -?, --help Print help about usage and exit. -v, --verbose Display extra informative messages during execution. -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. -d, --destdir destination Set the destination directory to destination. The default destination directory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA. -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 let- ter indicating the endianness of the data (the letter b indicated big endian data, and the letter l indicates little endian ones). -t, --type type Use type as the type of the data. This type is also used as the extension of the generated data file. The default type ie dat. -S, --source Write a C source file with the table of contents of the data. -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). 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

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 con- tain 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 file- names, 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. AUTHORS
