Command-line tool to decode text which has undergone MIME-typical encoding into (ISO-8859) 8-bit --- without having or parsing the relevant MIME type declarations.
Decodes quoted-printable sequences; handles UTF-8, UTF-16BE, UTF-16LE; optionally translates common characters from DOS or Windows code pages or HP-Roman8 into ISO-8859-1.
UCS characters can be mapped to 8-bit translation strings.
Single ISO C source file, "8conv.c".
Translation can be controlled through a configuration file, the sample file "8conv.conf" shows the syntax.
- Converts nearly any text encoding into ISO 8859-1.
- Configurable translation of Unicode characters outside Latin 1.
- Configurable input text encoding (eg HP-Roman8, DOS OEM).
- Knows about MIME encodings.
