recode_rs

Apache 2 / MIT dual-licensed

recode_rs is a command-line tool converting between the character encodings defined in the Encoding Standard.

It is written primarily as sample code that demonstrates the use of encoding_rs, which is why it has an option for using UTF-16 (as opposed to the default UTF-8) as the intermediate encoding, even though such an option doesn't really make sense from the perspective of using the program as non-sample code.

Installing via cargo

Using release-channel Rust:

cargo install recode_rs

With SIMD acceleration on x86, x86_64 and Aarch64:

cargo install recode_rs --features simd-accel

Building from a local git clone

Using release-channel Rust:

cargo build --release

With SIMD acceleration on x86, x86_64 and Aarch64:

cargo build --release --features simd-accel

Usage

recode_rs [-f INPUT_ENCODING] [-t OUTPUT_ENCODING] [-o OUTFILE] [INFILE] [...]

Options

    -o, --output PATH   set output file name (- for stdout; the default)
    -f, --from-code LABEL
                        set input encoding (defaults to UTF-8)
    -t, --to-code LABEL set output encoding (defaults to UTF-8)
    -u, --utf16-intermediate
                        use UTF-16 instead of UTF-8 as the intermediate
                        encoding
    -h, --help          print usage help
