RECODE(1)                             FSF                            RECODE(1)



NAME
       recode - manual page for recode 3.6

SYNOPSIS
       recode [OPTION]... [ [CHARSET] | REQUEST [FILE]... ]

DESCRIPTION
       Free 'recode' converts files between various character sets and surfaces.

       If  a  long  option  shows an argument as mandatory, then it is mandatory for the equivalent short option also.
       Similarly for optional arguments.

   Listings:
       -l, --list[=FORMAT]
              list one or all known charsets and aliases

       -k, --known=PAIRS
              restrict charsets according to known PAIRS list

       -h, --header[=[LN/]NAME]
              write table NAME on stdout using LN, then exit

       -F, --freeze-tables
              write out a C module holding all tables

       -T, --find-subsets
              report all charsets being subset of others

       -C, --copyright
              display Copyright and copying conditions

       --help display this help and exit

       --version
              output version information and exit

   Operation modes:
       -v, --verbose
              explain sequence of steps and report progress

       -q, --quiet, --silent
              inhibit messages about irreversible recodings

       -f, --force
              force recodings even when not reversible

       -t, --touch
              touch the recoded files after replacement

       -i, --sequence=files
              use intermediate files for sequencing passes

       --sequence=memory
              use memory buffers for sequencing passes

       -p, --sequence=pipe
              use pipe machinery for sequencing passes

   Fine tuning:
       -s, --strict
              use strict mappings, even loose characters

       -d, --diacritics
              convert only diacritics or alike for HTML/LaTeX

       -S, --source[=LN]
              limit recoding to strings and comments as for LN

       -c, --colons
              use colons instead of double quotes for diaeresis

       -g, --graphics
              approximate IBMPC rulers by ASCII graphics

       -x, --ignore=CHARSET
              ignore CHARSET while choosing a recoding path

       Option -l with no FORMAT nor CHARSET list available charsets and surfaces.  FORMAT is 'decimal', 'octal', 'hex-
       adecimal'  or 'full' (or one of 'dohf').  Unless DEFAULT_CHARSET is set in environment, CHARSET defaults to the
       locale dependent encoding, determined by LC_ALL, LC_CTYPE, LANG.  With -k, possible before charsets are  listed
       for the given after CHARSET, both being tabular charsets, with PAIRS of the form 'BEF1:AFT1,BEF2:AFT2,...'  and
       BEFs and AFTs being codes are given as decimal numbers.  LN is some language, it may be 'c',  'perl'  or  'po';
       'c' is the default.

       REQUEST  is  SUBREQUEST[,SUBREQUEST]...;  SUBREQUEST  is  ENCODING[..ENCODING]...  ENCODING is [CHARSET][/[SUR-
       FACE]]...; REQUEST often looks like BEFORE..AFTER, with BEFORE and AFTER being charsets.   An  omitted  CHARSET
       implies  the  usual charset; an omitted [/SURFACE]... means the implied surfaces for CHARSET; a / with an empty
       surface name means no surfaces at all.  See the manual.

       If none of -i and -p are given, presume -p if no FILE, else -i.  Each FILE is recoded over  itself,  destroying
       the original.  If no FILE is specified, then act as a filter and recode stdin to stdout.
