Description

ICUPKG(8)                       ICU 63.1 Manual                      ICUPKG(8)



NAME
       icupkg - extract or modify an ICU .dat archive

SYNOPSIS
       icupkg [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -tl, --type l | -tb, --type b | -te, --type
       e ] [ -c, --copyright | -C, --comment comment ] [ -a, --add  list  ]  [
       -r,  --remove  list  ]  [  -x,  --extract  list  ] [ -l, --list ] [ -s,
       --sourcedir source ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ -w, --writepkg ] [
       -m, --matchmode mode ] infilename [ outfilename ]

DESCRIPTION
       icupkg  reads  the  input ICU .dat package file, modify it according to
       the options, swap it to the  desired  platform  properties  (charset  &
       endianness), and optionally write the resulting ICU .dat package to the
       output file.  Items are removed, then added, then extracted and listed.
       An ICU .dat package is written if items are removed or added, or if the
       input and output filenames differ, or if the -w, --writepkg  option  is
       set.

       If  the  input  filename is "new" then an empty package is created.  If
       the output filename is missing, then it is automatically generated from
       the  input  filename.  If  the  input  filename ends with an l, b, or e
       matching its platform properties, then the output filename will contain
       the letter from the -t, --type option.

       This tool can also be used to just swap a single ICU data file, replac-
       ing the former icuswap tool. For this mode, provide the infilename (and
       optional outfilename) for a non-package ICU data file.  Allowed options
       include -t, -w, -s and -d The filenames can be absolute, or relative to
       the source/dest dir paths.  Other options are not allowed in this mode.

OPTIONS
       -h, -?, --help
              Print help about usage and exit.

       -tl, --type l
              Output  for little-endian/ASCII charset family.  The output type
              defaults to the input type.

       -tb, --type b
              Output for big-endian/ASCII charset  family.   The  output  type
              defaults to the input type.

       -te, --type e
              Output  for  big-endian/EBCDIC  charset family.  The output type
              defaults to the input type.

       -c,--copyright
              Include the ICU copyright notice in the resulting data.

       -C, --comment comment
              Include the specified comment in the resulting data  instead  of
              the ICU copyright notice.

       -a, --add list
              Add items from the list to the package. The list can be a single
              filename with a .txt file extension containing a  list  of  item
              filenames, or an ICU .dat package filename.

       -r, --remove list
              Remove  items  from the list from the package. The list can be a
              single filename with a .txt file extension containing a list  of
              item filenames, or an ICU .dat package filename.

       -x, --extract list
              Extract  items from the list from the package. The list can be a
              single filename with a .txt file extension containing a list  of
              item filenames, or an ICU .dat package filename.

       -m, --matchmode mode
              Set the matching mode for item names with wildcards.

       -s, --sourcedir source
              Set  the  source directory to source.  The default source direc-
              tory is the current directory.

       -d, --destdir destination
              Set the destination directory to destination.  The default  des-
              tination directory is the current directory.

       -l, --list
              List the package items to stdout (after modifying the package).

LIST FILE SYNTAX
       Items  are  listed  on  one  or  more lines and separated by whitespace
       (space+tab).  Comments begin with # and are ignored.  Empty  lines  are
       ignored.  Lines  where  the  first  non-whitespace  character is one of
       "%&'()*+,-./:;<=>?_ are also ignored to reserve for future syntax.

       Items for removal or extraction may contain a single * wildcard charac-
       ter.  The * matches zero or more characters. If -m, --matchmode noslash
       is set, then the * character does not match the / character.

       Items must be listed relative to the package, and  the  --sourcedir  or
       the  --destdir  path will be prepended. The paths are only prepended to
       item filenames while adding or extracting items, not to ICU .dat  pack-
       age or list filenames.

       Paths  may contain / instead of the platform's file separator character
       and are converted as appropriate.
