yaz-iconv - YAZ Character set conversion utility


   yaz-iconv [-f from] [-t to] [-v] [file...]


   yaz-iconv converts data in file in character set specified by from to
   output in character set as specified by to.

   This yaz-iconv utility similar to the iconv found on many POSIX systems
   (Glibc, Solaris, etc).

   If no file is specified, yaz-iconv reads from standard input.


       Specify the character set from of the input file. Should be used in
       conjunction with option -t.

       Specify the character set of of the output. Should be used in
       conjunction with option -f.

       Print more information about the conversion process.


   The yaz-iconv command and the API as defined in yaz/yaz-iconv.h is a
   wrapper for the library system call iconv. But YAZ' iconv utility also
   implements conversions on its own. The table below lists characters
   sets (or encodings). that are supported by YAZ. Each character set is
   marked with either encode or decode. If an encoding is encode-enabled
   YAZ may convert to to the designated encoding. If an encoding is
   decode-enabled, YAZ may convert from the designated encoding.

   marc8 (encode, decode)
       The MARC8[1] encoding as defined by the Library of Congress. Most
       MARC21/USMARC records usees this encoding.

   marc8s (encode, decode)
       Like MARC8 but with conversion prefers non-combined characters in
       the Latin-1 plane over combined characters.

   marc8lossy (encode)
       Lossy encoding of MARC-8.

   marc8lossless (encode)
       Lossless encoding of MARC8.

   utf8 (encode, decode)
       The most commonly used UNICODE encoding on the Internet.

   iso8859-1 (encode, decode)
       ISO-8859-1, AKA Latin-1.

   iso5426 (decode)
       ISO 5426. Some MARC records (UNIMARC) uses this encoding.

   iso5428:1984 (encode, decode)
       ISO 5428:1984.

   advancegreek (encode, decode)
       An encoding for Greek used by some vendors (Advance).

   danmarc (decode)
       Danmarc (in danish)[2] is an encoding based on UNICODE which is
       used for DanMARC2 records.


   The following command converts from ISO-8859-1 (Latin-1) to UTF-8.

           yaz-iconv -f ISO-8859-1 -t UTF-8 -X <input.lst >output.lst
