NAME

piconv -- iconv(1), reinvented in perl

CONTENTS

SYNOPSIS



  piconv [-f from_encoding] [-t to_encoding]
         [-p|--perlqq|--htmlcref|--xmlcref] [-C N|-c] [-D] [-S scheme]
         [-s string|file...]
  piconv -l
  piconv -r encoding_alias
  piconv -h



DESCRIPTION

<B>piconvB> is perl version of <B>iconvB>, a character encoding converter widely available for various Unixen today. This script was primarily a technology demonstrator for Perl 5.8.0, but you can use piconv in the place of iconv for virtually any case.

piconv converts the character encoding of either STDIN or files specified in the argument and prints out to STDOUT.

Here is the list of options. Some options can be in short format (-f) or long (--from) one.
-f,--from from_encoding Specifies the encoding you are converting from. Unlike <B>iconvB>, this option can be omitted. In such cases, the current locale is used.
-t,--to to_encoding Specifies the encoding you are converting to. Unlike <B>iconvB>, this option can be omitted. In such cases, the current locale is used.

Therefore, when both -f and -t are omitted, <B>piconvB> just acts like <B>catB>.

-s,--string string uses string instead of file for the source of text.
-l,--list Lists all available encodings, one per line, in case-insensitive order. Note that only the canonical names are listed; many aliases exist. For example, the names are case-insensitive, and many standard and common aliases work, such as latin1 for ISO-8859-1, or ibm850 instead of cp850, or winlatin1 for cp1252. See Encode::Supported for a full discussion.
-r,--resolve encoding_alias Resolve encoding_alias to Encode canonical encoding name.
-C,--check N Check the validity of the stream if N = 1. When N = -1, something interesting happens when it encounters an invalid character.
-c Same as -C 1.
-p,--perlqq Transliterate characters missing in encoding to \x{HHHH} where HHHH is the hexadecimal Unicode code point.
--htmlcref Transliterate characters missing in encoding to &#NNN; where NNN is the decimal Unicode code point.
--xmlcref Transliterate characters missing in encoding to &#xHHHH; where HHHH is the hexadecimal Unicode code point.
-h,--help Show usage.
-D,--debug Invokes debugging mode. Primarily for Encode hackers.
-S,--scheme scheme Selects which scheme is to be used for conversion. Available schemes are as follows:
from_to Uses Encode::from_to for conversion. This is the default.
decode_encode Input strings are decode()d then encode()d. A straight two-step implementation.
perlio The new perlIO layer is used. NI-S’ favorite.

You should use this option if you are using UTF-16 and others which linefeed is not $/.

Like the -D option, this is also for Encode hackers.
