For Japanese language handling, the jistoeuc family provides conversion between different code standards. command [ filename ...] does the specified conversion on the contents of the input filenames and writes it to stdout.
If filename is not given, it reads and converts characters from the standard input.
jistoeuc converts JIS to Japanese EUC
jistosj converts JIS to PC kanji
euctojis converts Japanese EUC to JIS
euctosj converts Japanese EUC to PC kanji
sjtojis converts PC kanji to JIS
sjtoeuc converts PC kanji to Japanese EUC
-8 With this option specified, the commands jistoeuc, jistosj, sjtojis, and sjtoeuc, can support JIS X 0201 (Half-Size Katakana). This 8-bit JIS code does not use ISO Shift-In and Shift-Out escape sequences.
-U The output is not buffered (The default is buffered output).
This command can handle shift-in escape sequences for the following character sets:
euctojis and sjtojis can handle shift-in escape sequences for the following character sets:
jistoeuc does not check whether or not each code in the input file is correct. Conversion with PC kanji is not based on TOG Japanese Vendors Council (TOG/JVC) Recommended Code Set Conversion Specification between Japanese EUC and Shift-JIS. The iconv(1) utility provides these functions. See iconv(1) and iconv_ja(5) for more information.
If JIS X 0212 character set is specified as input, jistosj and euctosj can not support the conversion correctly. euctosj, sjtoeuc, jistosj, and sjtojis can support conversion correctly only if JIS X 0208 1 ku - 84 ku is specified as input.
