MAKECONV(1)                ICU 3.6 Manual                MAKECONV(1)



NAME
       makeconv - compile a converter table

SYNOPSIS
       makeconv  [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -c, --copyright ] [ -v, --ver‐
       bose ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] convertertable ...

DESCRIPTION
       makeconv converts the ICU converter table convertertable into
       a binary file. The binary file has the same base name as con‐
       vertertable but has a .cnv extension (instead of the  typical
       .ucm extension of the convertertable file).  This binary file
       can then be read directly by ICU, or used by  pkgdata(1)  for
       incorporation into a larger archive or library.

       The  convertertable  must be in the ICU ucm (Unicode Codepage
       Mapping) format in order to be understood by  makeconv.   The
       ICU  ucm  format is similar to the IBM NLTC upmap/tpmap/rpmap
       files.  Comments in the convertable are handled  as  follows.
       If  a  comment  (starting with a `#' sign) that is after some
       text does contain the fallback indicator `|'  then  only  the
       text  starting  with  the `#' sign, and ending before the `|'
       sign, is ignored.  Otherwise, or if the comment is the  first
       thing  on  the  line,  the  comment runs up to the end of the
       line. This special handling of comments is to accomodate  the
       practice  of  putting fallback information in comments in the
       strict IBM NLTC ucmap format.

       Note that new converters will be automatically found  by  ICU
       after their installation in ICU's data directory. They do not
       need to be listed in the convrtrs.txt(5)  converters  aliases
       file  in  order  to  be  available to applications using ICU.
       They do need to be listed there if one  wants  to  give  them
       aliases, or tags, though.

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

       -c, --copyright
              Include a copyright notice in the binary data.

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

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

CAVEATS
       If  an  existing  converter  table  is changed and recompiled
       using makeconv, the resulting binary file must be packaged in
       the  same way that it was packaged initially. For example, if
       converters were grouped together in an archive or  a  library
       with  pkgdata(1), then the archive or library must be rebuilt
       with the new binary file.  A standalone binary converter file
       will not take precedence over a packaged one.

ENVIRONMENT
       ICU_DATA  Specifies   the   directory  containing  ICU  data.
                 Defaults to /usr/share/icu/3.6/.  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.
