ICUPKG(8)                    ICU 67.1 Manual                   ICUPKG(8)

NAME         top

       icupkg - extract or modify an ICU .dat archive

SYNOPSIS         top

       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         top

       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,
       replacing 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         top

       -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
              directory is the current directory.

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

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

LIST FILE SYNTAX         top

       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
       character. 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 package or list filenames.

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