     NAME
          tcs - translate character sets

     SYNOPSIS
          tcs -l [-v] [ csname ]

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

     DESCRIPTION
          Tcs converts its input from the ics character set encoding
          into Unicode runes and then outputs the data in the encoding
          of the ocs character set.  The default values of ics and ocs
          are both utf8.  This is the standard Inferno Unicode text
          encoding as described by utf(6). If no files are specified
          tcs reads from its standard input.

          The -l option causes tcs to output the list of character
          sets that it understands.  The -v option causes a more
          detailed listing to be given.  Giving a csname argument to
          the -l option causes tcs to list the known aliases for that
          name.  The first name in the list is the standard (or pre-
          ferred) name.
