Namenative2ascii---Convert Java source code to ASCII
JDK 1.1 and later.
native2ascii [ options ] [ inputfile [ outputfile ]]
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.
