DESCRIPTION         top

       gencnval converts the ICU aliases file converterfile into the
       binary file  This binary file can then be read
       directly by ICU, or used by pkgdata(1) for incorporation into a
       larger archive or library.

       If converterfile is not provided, the default ICU convrtrs.txt
       file is used.

OPTIONS         top

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

       -v, --verbose
              Display verbose output. This information can include
              information about conflicting aliases and the converters
              the aliases resolve to.

       -c, --copyright
              Include a copyright notice in the binary data.

       -s, --sourcedir source
              Set the source directory to source.  The default source
              directory is specified by the environment variable

       -d, --destdir destination
              Set the destination directory to destination.  The default
              destination directory is specified by the environment
              variable ICU_DATA.

ENVIRONMENT         top

              Specifies the directory containing ICU data. Defaults to
              ${prefix}/share/icu/73.0.1/.  Some tools in ICU depend on
              the presence of the trailing slash. It is thus important
              to make sure that it is present if ICU_DATA is set.

FILES         top

              data file is not normally installed, and it is available
