NAME         top

       gencfu - Generates Unicode Confusable data files

SYNOPSIS         top

       gencfu [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -V, --version ] [ -c, --copyright ] [
       -v, --verbose ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ -i, --icudatadir
       directory ] -r, --rules rule-file -w, --wsrules
       whole-script-rule-file -o, --out output-file

DESCRIPTION         top

       gencfu reads confusable character definitions in the input file,
       which are plain text files containing confusable character
       definitions in the input format defined by Unicode UAX39 for the
       files confusables.txt and confusablesWholeScript.txt.  This
       source (.txt) format is also accepted by ICU spoof detectors.
       The files must be encoded in utf-8 format, with or without a BOM.
       Normally the output data file has the .cfu extension.

              example, the file must be located when ICU's
              data is not built as a shared library.  The default ICU
              data directory is specified by the environment variable
              ICU_DATA.  Most configurations of ICU do not require this

       -r, --rules rule-file
              The source file to read.
