SYNOPSIS

recode [OPTION]... [ [CHARSET] | REQUEST [FILE]... ]

DESCRIPTION

Free ‘recode’ converts files between various character sets and surfaces.

If a long option shows an argument as mandatory, then it is mandatory for the equivalent short option also. Similarly for optional arguments.

    Listings:

-l, --list[=FORMAT]
  list one or all known charsets and aliases
-k, --known=PAIRS
  restrict charsets according to known PAIRS list
-h, --header[=[LN/]NAME]
  write table NAME on stdout using LN, then exit
-F, --freeze-tables
  write out a C module holding all tables
-T, --find-subsets
  report all charsets being subset of others
-C, --copyright
  display Copyright and copying conditions
--help display this help and exit
--version
  output version information and exit

    Operation modes:

-v, --verbose
  explain sequence of steps and report progress
-q, --quiet, --silent
  inhibit messages about irreversible recodings
-f, --force
  force recodings even when not reversible
-t, --touch
  touch the recoded files after replacement
-i, --sequence=files
  use intermediate files for sequencing passes
--sequence=memory
  use memory buffers for sequencing passes
-p, --sequence=pipe
  use pipe machinery for sequencing passes

    Fine tuning:

-s, --strict
  use strict mappings, even loose characters
-d, --diacritics
  convert only diacritics or alike for HTML/LaTeX
-S, --source[=LN]
  limit recoding to strings and comments as for LN
-c, --colons
  use colons instead of double quotes for diaeresis
-g, --graphics
  approximate IBMPC rulers by ASCII graphics
-x, --ignore=CHARSET
  ignore CHARSET while choosing a recoding path
Option -l with no FORMAT nor CHARSET list available charsets and surfaces. FORMAT is ‘decimal’, ‘octal’, ‘hexadecimal’ or ‘full’ (or one of ‘dohf’). Unless DEFAULT_CHARSET is set in environment, CHARSET defaults to the locale dependent encoding, determined by LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LANG. With -k, possible before charsets are listed for the given after CHARSET, both being tabular charsets, with PAIRS of the form ‘BEF1:AFT1,BEF2:AFT2,...’ and BEFs and AFTs being codes are given as decimal numbers. LN is some language, it may be ‘c’, ‘perl’ or ‘po’; ‘c’ is the default.

REQUEST is SUBREQUEST[,SUBREQUEST]...; SUBREQUEST is ENCODING[..ENCODING]... ENCODING is [CHARSET][/[SURFACE]]...; REQUEST often looks like BEFORE..AFTER, with BEFORE and AFTER being charsets. An omitted CHARSET implies the usual charset; an omitted [/SURFACE]... means the implied surfaces for CHARSET; a / with an empty surface name means no surfaces at all. See the manual.

If none of -i and -p are given, presume -p if no FILE, else -i. Each FILE is recoded over itself, destroying the original. If no FILE is specified, then act as a filter and recode stdin to stdout.
