For each byte of the input ByteName prints a line consisting of the byte offset, the byte in hex, octal, binary, and decimal, and its description in a selected single-byte encoding. A command line flag suppresses printing of lines corresponding to ASCII characters, which is useful for locating stray non-ASCII codes. It can also generate a chart for a specified encoding or, for a specified codepoint, generate descriptions in all known encodings. More than 50 encodings are supported.
