native2ascii

Name

native2ascii---Convert Java source code to ASCII

Availability

JDK 1.1 and later.

Synopsis

native2ascii [ options ] [ inputfile [ outputfile ]]

Description

javac can only process files encoded in ASCII, with any other characters encoded using the \uxxxx Unicode notation. native2ascii is a simple program that reads a Java source file encoded using a local encoding and converts it to the ASCII-plus-encoded-Unicode form required by javac.

The inputfile and outputfile are optional. If unspecified, standard input and standard output are used, making native2ascii suitable for use in pipes.

Options

-encoding encoding-name

Specifies the encoding used by source files. If this option is not specified, the encoding is taken from the file.encoding system property.

-reverse

Specifies that the conversion should be done in reverse--from encoded \uxxxx characters to characters in the native encoding.
