SYNOPSIS

tcs [ -slcv ] [ -f ics ] [ -t ocs ] [ file ... ]

DESCRIPTION

Tcs interprets the named file(s) (standard input default) as a stream of characters from the ics character set or format, converts them to runes, and then converts them into a stream of characters from the ocs character set or format on the standard output. The default value for ics and ocs is utf, the UTF encoding described in utf(7). The -l option lists the character sets known to tcs. Processing continues in the face of conversion errors (the -s option prevents reporting of these errors). The -c option forces the output to contain only correctly converted characters; otherwise, 0x80 characters will be substituted for UTF encoding errors and 0xFFFD characters will substituted for unknown characters.

The -v option generates various diagnostic and summary information on standard error, or makes the -l output more verbose.

Tcs recognizes an ever changing list of character sets. In particular, it supports a variety of Russian and Japanese encodings. Some of the supported encodings are
utf The Plan 9 UTF encoding, known by ISO as UTF-8
utf1 The deprecated original UTF encoding from ISO 10646
ascii 7-bit ASCII
8859-1 Latin-1 (Central European)
8859-2 Latin-2 (Czech .. Slovak)
8859-3 Latin-3 (Dutch .. Turkish)
8859-4 Latin-4 (Scandinavian)
8859-5 Part 5 (Cyrillic)
8859-6 Part 6 (Arabic)
8859-7 Part 7 (Greek)
8859-8 Part 8 (Hebrew)
8859-9 Latin-5 (Finnish .. Portuguese)
koi8 KOI-8 (GOST 19769-74)
jis-kanji
  ISO 2022-JP
ujis EUC-JX: JIS 0208
ms-kanji
  Microsoft, or Shift-JIS
jis (from only) guesses between ISO 2022-JP, EUC or Shift-Jis
gb Chinese national standard (GB2312-80)
big5 Big 5 (HKU version)
