native2ascii(1)		  Internationalization Tools	       native2ascii(1)

       native2ascii - Creates localizable applications by converting a file
       with characters in any supported	character encoding to one with ASCII
       and/or Unicode escapes or vice versa.

       native2ascii [ inputfile	] [ outputfile ]

	      The encoded file to be converted to ASCII.

	      The converted ASCII file.

       The native2ascii	command	converts encoded files supported by the	Java
       Runtime Environment (JRE) to files encoded in ASCII, using Unicode
       escapes (\uxxxx)	notation for all characters that are not part of the
       ASCII character set. This process is required for properties files that
       contain characters not in ISO-8859-1 character sets. The	tool can also
       perform the reverse conversion.

       If the outputfile value is omitted, then	standard output	is used	for
       output. If, in addition,	the inputfile value is omitted,	then standard
       input is	used for input.

	      Perform the reverse operation: Converts a	file encoded in
	      ISO-8859-1 with Unicode escapes to a file	in any character
	      encoding supported by the	JRE.

       -encoding encoding_name
	      Specifies	the name of the	character encoding to be used by the
	      conversion procedure. If this option is not present, then	the
	      default character	encoding (as determined	by the
	      java.nio.charset.Charset.defaultCharset method) is used. The
	      encoding_name string must	be the name of a character encoding
	      that is supported	by the JRE. See	Supported Encodings at

	      Passes option to the Java	Virtual	Machine	(JVM), where option is
	      one of the options described on the reference page for the Java
	      application launcher. For	example, -J-Xms48m sets	the startup
	      memory to	48 MB. See java(1).
