GAUCHE-CESCONV(1)		Gauche Commands		     GAUCHE-CESCONV(1)

NAME
       gauche-cesconv -	convert	text from one character	encoding scheme	to
       another

SYNOPSIS
       gauche-cesconv [-h] [-f encoding] [-t encoding] [-o outfile] [infile]

DESCRIPTION
       The gauche-cesconv command is a program to convert text from one
       character encoding scheme (CES) to another, using Gauche's character
       conversion module.  Hence the supported character sets are the same as
       Gauche's.  See the info document	of Gauche for more details.

       There are other commands	that provide the same functionality and	more,
       such as iconv(1)	or nkf(1), but they are	not universally	available by
       default.	 This command is provided for Gauche's external	packages to
       ease the	installation and configuration process;	for those packages, it
       is certain that gauche-cesconv is available, so they don't need to
       check availability of iconv etc.

       When infile is omitted, the text	is read	from standard input.

OPTIONS
       -f, --from-code=encoding
	   Selects input encoding. Can be '*JP'	to guess the character
	   encoding from japanese text,	among either ISO2022-JP(-1,2,3),
	   EUCJP, SHIFT_JIS or UTF-8.  If omitted, gauche's native CES is
	   used.

       -h, --help
	   Show	summary	of options.

       -o, --output=outfile
	   Place output	in file	outfile. If omitted the	converted text is
	   written to standard output.

       -t, --to-code=encoding
	   Selects output encoding. (see also --from-code)

DIAGNOSTICS
       gauche-cesconv exits with status	0 on success.

SEE ALSO
       gauche-package(1), iconv(1)

       The program will	be documented fully by the Gauche Developers'
       Reference available via the info(1) system.
