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(7).	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).  The -c option forces the	output to  contain  only  cor-
       rectly converted	characters; otherwise, 0x80 characters will be substi-
       tuted for UTF encoding errors and 0xFFFD	 characters  will  substituted
       for unknown characters.

       The  -v	option generates various diagnostic and	summary	information on
       standard	error, or makes	the -l output more verbose.

       Tcs recognizes an ever changing list of character sets.	In particular,
       it  supports  a variety of Russian and Japanese encodings.  Some	of the
       supported encodings are

       tcs -s -f jis
