GENCMN(8)			ICU 69.1 Manual			     GENCMN(8)

NAME
       gencmn -	generate an ICU	memory-mappable	data file

SYNOPSIS
       gencmn  [  -h,  -?,  --help ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -c, --copyright | -C,
       --comment comment ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ -n, --name name ] [
       -t, --type fileext ] [ -S, --source ] [ -e, --entrypoint	name ] maxsize
       [ listfilename ]

DESCRIPTION
       gencmn takes a set of files and packages	them as	an ICU memory-mappable
       data file. The resulting	data file can then be used directly by ICU.

       gencmn  reads  a	 list of files to be packaged from either the supplied
       listfilename file, or from its standard output.	It  packages  all  the
       files  from  the	list that are not bigger than maxsize bytes, except if
       maxsize is 0, which indicates that there	is no size limit on files.

OPTIONS
       -h, -?, --help
	      Print help about usage and exit.

       -v, --verbose
	      Display extra informative	messages during	execution.

       -c,--copyright
	      Include the ICU copyright	notice in the resulting	data.

       -C, --comment comment
	      Include the specified comment in the resulting data  instead  of
	      the ICU copyright	notice.

       -d, --destdir destination
	      Set  the destination directory to	destination.  The default des-
	      tination directory is  specified	by  the	 environment  variable
	      ICU_DATA.

       -n, --name name
	      Set  the	data name to name instead of the default. This name is
	      also used	as the base name of the	output.	The  default  name  is
	      made of the icudt	prefix,	followed by a two-digit	version	number
	      corresponding to the current version of the ICU release,	and  a
	      single  letter indicating	the endianness of the data (the	letter
	      b	indicated big endian data, and the letter l  indicates	little
	      endian ones).

       -t, --type type
	      Use  type	as the type of the data. This type is also used	as the
	      extension	of the generated data file. The	default	type ie	dat.

       -S, --source
	      Write a C	source file with the table of contents of the data.

       -e, --entrypoint	name
	      Set the data entry point (used for linking against the data in a
	      shared  library  form) to	name.  The default entry point name is
	      made of the data (set by the -n, --name option) followed	by  an
	      underscore  and  the type	of the data (set by the	-t, --type op-
	      tion).

ENVIRONMENT
       ICU_DATA	 Specifies the directory  containing  ICU  data.  Defaults  to
		 ${prefix}/share/icu/69.1/.   Some  tools in ICU depend	on the
		 presence of the trailing slash. It is thus important to  make
		 sure that it is present if ICU_DATA is	set.

VERSION
       69.1
