NAME

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 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 direc‐
tory is specified by the environment variable ICU_DATA.

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

ENVIRONMENT
ICU_DATA Specifies the directory containing ICU data. Defaults to
${prefix}/share/icu/55.1/. 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.
