gencnval — compile the converters aliases file

Synopsis

gencnval [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -c, --copyright ] [ -s, --sourcedir source ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ converterfile ]

Description

gencnval converts the ICU aliases file converterfile into the binary file cnvalias.icu. This binary file can then be read directly by ICU, or used by pkgdata(1) for incorporation into a larger archive or library.

If converterfile is not provided, the default ICU convrtrs.txt file is used.

Options

-h, -?, --help
Print help about usage and exit.
-v, --verbose
Display verbose output. This information can include information about conflicting aliases and the converters the aliases resolve to.
-c, --copyright
Include a copyright notice in the binary data.
-s, --sourcedir source
Set the source directory to source. The default source directory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA.
-d, --destdir destination
Set the destination directory to destination. The default destination directory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA.

Environment

ICU_DATA
Specifies the directory containing ICU data. Defaults to /usr/share/icu/57.1/. 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.

Files

icu/source/data/mappings/convrtrs.txt
Description of ICU's converters and their aliases. This data file is not normally installed, and it is available as a part of ICU source code.
