gauche-cesconv - convert text from one character encoding scheme to another SYNOPSIS
gauche-cesconv [-h] [-f encoding] [-t encoding] [-o outfile] [infile] DESCRIPTION
The gauche-cesconv command is a program to convert text from one character encoding scheme (CES) to another, using Gauche's character conversion module. Hence the supported character sets are the same as Gauche's. See the info document of Gauche for more details. There are other commands that provide the same functionality and more, such as iconv(1) or nkf(1), but they are not universally available by default. This command is provided for Gauche's external packages to ease the installation and configuration process; for those packages, it is certain that gauche-cesconv is available, so they don't need to check availability of iconv etc. When infile is omitted, the text is read from standard input. OPTIONS
-f, --from-code=encoding Selects input encoding. Can be '*JP' to guess the character encoding from japanese text, among either ISO2022-JP(-1,2,3), EUCJP, SHIFT_JIS or UTF-8. If omitted, gauche's native CES is used. -h, --help Show summary of options. -o, --output=outfile Place output in file outfile. If omitted the converted text is written to standard output. -t, --to-code=encoding Selects output encoding. (see also --from-code) DIAGNOSTICS
gauche-cesconv exits with status 0 on success. SEE ALSO
gauche-package(1), iconv(1) The program will be documented fully by the Gauche Developers' Reference available via the info(1) system. AUTHORS

iconv - Convert encoding of given files from one encoding to another SYNOPSIS
iconv -f encoding [-t encoding] [inputfile]... DESCRIPTION
The iconv program converts the encoding of characters in inputfile, or from the standard input if no filename is specified, from one coded character set to another. The result is written to standard output unless otherwise specified by the --output option. --from-code, -f encoding Convert characters from encoding. --to-code, -t encoding Convert characters to encoding. If not specified the encoding corresponding to the current locale is used. --list, -l List known coded character sets. -c Omit invalid characters from output. --output, -o file Specify output file (instead of stdout). --silent, -s Suppress warnings, but not errors. --verbose Print progress information. --help, -? Give help list. --usage Give a short usage message. --version, -V Print program version. ENCODINGS
The values permitted for --from-code and --to-code can be listed by the iconv --list command, and all combinations of the listed values are supported. Furthermore the following two suffixes are supported: //TRANSLIT When the string "//TRANSLIT" is appended to --to-code, transliteration is activated. This means that when a character cannot be represented in the target character set, it can be approximated through one or several similarly looking characters. //IGNORE When the string "//IGNORE" is appended to --to-code, characters that cannot be represented in the target character set will be silently discarded.
