 NAME    [Toc]    [Back]
      sconv - hp9000 utility for Simplified-Chinese code code-converter

 SYNOPSIS    [Toc]    [Back]


      sconv num infile outfile

      sconv -n num -f file_of_namelist

 DESCRIPTION    [Toc]    [Back]
      sconv is used to do code conversion from GB internal code to
      Big5/Unicode(UCS2 or UTF8) internal code and vice versa, also from
      Big5 internal code to GBK code and vice versa.

      It provides three processing modes.

      Mode (1) : sconv

      The first one is an interactive menu mode. Just invoke the command.
      It will display the main menu, and prompt you for which kind of code
      conversion you need(whether it is from GB to Big5, GB to Unicode, or
      Big5 to GBK). And then, it will prompt you for your input filename and
      output filename.

      Mode (2) : sconv num infile outfile

      The second is used to convert one GB or Big5 code text file to the
      other code type text file in command mode. The infile stands for the
      input filename, outfile for output filename. And num is the selection
      number you can find out from the interactive menu mode. Below is the
      description of them :

      num = 1 : From GB code to Big5 code.
            2 : From GB code to Unicode's Canonical Form(UCS2).
            3 : From Big5 code to GB code.
            4 : From Unicode's Canonical Form(UCS2) to GB code.
            5 : From Big5 code to GBK code.
            6 : From GBK code to Big5 code.
            7 : From GB code to Universal Trans. Format-8(UTF8).
            8 : From Universal Trans. Format-8(UTF8) to GB code.

      Mode (3) : sconv -n num -f file_of_namelist

 sconv(1)                                                           sconv(1)
 HP-UX                                                                 HP-UX

      The third is used to convert many files with one sconv 1 command. You
      have to create a file with all the filenames you want to convert.  Let
      the file name be file_of_namelist , and the format of the file is :


      Then use the command to convert all those files in batch mode. Also,
      same as Mode (2), num is the selection number you can find from the
      interactive menu mode. Notice that you can only do one kind of
      conversion to all the files in file_of_namelist , and there is no
      output filenames, all the files will be put into original file names
      which you specify in file_of_namelist.

 EXAMPLE    [Toc]    [Back]
      sconv 2 file_in file_out , converts a text file from Big5 to GB

      sconv -n 2 -f file_list , converts all the files in file_list from
      Big5 to GB

 NOTICE    [Toc]    [Back]
      By default, sconv maps non-mapped characters to spaces.
