Unicode Description Utilities

Utilities for analyzing Unicode-encoded text files

The Unicode Description Utilities is a set of four programs for finding out what is in a Unicode file. 'uniname' defaults to printing the character offset of each character, its byte offset, its hex code value, its encoding, the glyph itself, and its name. Command line options allow undesired information to be suppressed and the Unicode range to be added. 'unidesc' reports the character ranges to which different portions of the text belong. 'unihist' generates a histogram of the characters in its input. 'ExplicateUTF8' is intended for debugging or for learning about Unicode. It determines and explains the validity of a sequence of bytes as a UTF-8 encoding.
