YAZ-ICONV(1)			   Commands			  YAZ-ICONV(1)

NAME
       yaz-iconv - YAZ Character set conversion	utility

SYNOPSIS
       yaz-iconv [-f from] [-t to] [-v]	[file...]

DESCRIPTION
       yaz-iconv converts data in the character	set specified by from to
       output in the character set as specified	by to.

       This yaz-iconv utility is similar to the	iconv found on many POSIX
       systems (Glibc, Solaris,	etc).

       If no file is specified,	yaz-iconv reads	from standard input.

OPTIONS
       -ffrom]
	   Specify the character set from of the input file. Should be used in
	   conjunction with option -t.

       -tto]
	   Specify the character set of	of the output. Should be used in
	   conjunction with option -f.

       -v
	   Print more information about	the conversion process.

ENCODINGS
       The yaz-iconv command and the API as defined in yaz/yaz-iconv.h is a
       wrapper for the library system call iconv. But YAZ' iconv utility also
       implements conversions on its own. The table below lists	characters
       sets (or	encodings) that	are supported by YAZ. Each character set is
       marked with either encode or decode. If an encoding is encode-enabled,
       YAZ may convert to the designated encoding. If an encoding is
       decode-enabled, YAZ may convert from the	designated encoding.

       marc8 (encode, decode)
	   The MARC8[1]	encoding as defined by the Library of Congress.	Most
	   MARC21/USMARC records use this encoding.

       marc8s (encode, decode)
	   Like	MARC8 but conversion prefers non-combined characters in	the
	   Latin-1 plane over combined characters.

       marc8lossy (encode)
	   Lossy encoding of MARC-8.

       marc8lossless (encode)
	   Lossless encoding of	MARC8.

       utf8 (encode, decode)
	   The most commonly used UNICODE encoding on the Internet.

       iso8859-1 (encode, decode)
	   ISO-8859-1, AKA Latin-1.

       iso5426 (decode)
	   ISO 5426. Some MARC records (UNIMARC) use this encoding.

       iso5428:1984 (encode, decode)
	   ISO 5428:1984.

       advancegreek (encode, decode)
	   An encoding for Greek in use	by some	vendors	(Advance).

       danmarc (decode)
	   Danmarc (in danish)[2] is an	encoding based on UNICODE which	is
	   used	for DanMARC2 records.

EXAMPLES
       The following command converts from ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1)	to UTF-8.

	       yaz-iconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t UTF-8	<input.lst >output.lst
