       tcs - translate character sets

       tcs [ -slcv ] [ -f ics ] [ -t ocs ] [ file ...  ]

       Tcs  interprets	the named file(s) (standard input default) as a stream
       of characters from the ics character set or format,  converts  them  to
       runes,  and then converts them into a stream of characters from the ocs
       character set or format on the standard output.	The default value  for
       ics  and	 ocs  is  utf,	the  UTF encoding described in utf(6).	The -l
       option lists the character sets known to tcs.  Processing continues  in
       the  face  of  conversion  errors  (the -s option prevents reporting of
       these errors).  The -c option forces the output to  contain  only  cor‐
       rectly  converted  characters; otherwise, Runeerror (0xFFFD) characters
       will be substituted for UTF encoding errors and unknown characters.

       The -v option generates various diagnostic and summary  information  on
       standard error, or makes the -l output more verbose.

       Tcs recognizes an ever changing list of character sets.	In particular,
       it supports a variety of Russian and Japanese encodings.	 Some  of  the
       supported encodings are
