NAME
       cvtenc -	file encoding converter

SYNOPSIS
       cvtenc [-Encoding encoding] [-EscapeIn yes|NO] [-EscapeOut yes|NO]
	filename

DESCRIPTION
       Converts	 a file	encoded	in a specified or default non-unicode encoding
       to unicode (UTF16), or, if the file is already in unicode, converts  it
       to  a specified or default non-unicode encoding.	 The converted text is
       printed to standard out.	 If the	filename is a hyphen  then  this  tool
       reads from standard input.

OPTIONS
       -Encoding  encoding
	   Specify  non-unicode	encoding to be used.  The direction of conver-
	   sion	depends	on whether the file given as input  is	recognized  as
	   unicode  (from the higher order bytes).  To get a list of available
	   encodings, enter "list" for the encoding.  If this  is  not	speci-
	   fied, the default encoding for the current locale is	used.

       -EscapeIn YES|NO
	   Specify  '-EscapeIn	YES'  (the default is 'NO') to parse the input
	   for \u escape sequences (as in property lists).

       -EscapeOut YES|NO
	   Specify '-EscapeOut YES' (the default is 'NO') to generate  \u  es-
	   cape	 sequences  (as	 in property lists) in the output.  Note, this
	   might produce unexpected results for	some encodings.

       -Unicode	IN|OUT
	   Specify '-Unicode IN' (or '-Unicode OUT') to	control	the  direction
	   of  conversion rather than having the tool guess it on the basis of
	   the content it reads.  Using	'-Unicode  IN'	means  that  the  tool
	   reads  UTF16	 data  and writes C-String data, while using '-Unicode
	   OUT'	merans that the	tool reads  C-String  data  and	 writes	 UTF16
	   data.
