trscripts

Scripts for reencoding text files and BDF-fonts

Description

The script `trbdf' can convert a BDF font from one codeset to another.

The script `trcs' reencodes text files from one codeset to another. It can generate scripts for `tr'. For example the command
 trcs --from cp1252 --to latin1 --gen-script
gives you the following output:
 #!/bin/sh

 trap "exit 0" PIPE

 cat "$@" | tr \
 '\200''\201''\202''\203''\204''\205''\206''\207''\210''\211''\212'\
 '\213''\214''\215''\216''\217''\220''\221''\222''\223''\224''\225'\
 '\226''\227''\230''\231''\232''\233''\234''\235''\236''\237' \
 '\105''\77''\47''\146''\42''\267''\53''\77''\136''\77''\123'\
 '\253''\117''\77''\132''\77''\77''\47''\47''\42''\42''\267'\
 '\-''\-''\176''\77''\163''\273''\157''\77''\172''\131'

Both scripts try to approximate the missing from the target codeset symbols.

It is easy to add support of other character sets.
