TCS(1) TCS(1) NAME tcs - translate character sets 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(6). 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); in this case, 0x80 characters will be sub- stituted for UTF encoding errors and 0xFFFD characters will substituted for unknown characters unless the -c option is specified. The -v option generates various diagnostic and summary information on standard error, or makes the -l output more verbose. Tcs recognizes the following character sets: utf UTF encoding from 10646 ascii 7-bit ASCII 8859-1 Latin-1 (Central European) latin1 ISO 8859-1 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 ..

Unknown Kanji will be TCS(1) TCS(1) converted into 0xFFFD characters. SEE ALSO ascii(1), rune(2), utf(6).
