Tamil Encoding Converters

Programs for converting Tamil text among Unicode, ISCII, ITRANS, and TSCII

This package containsfive programs that convert Tamil text from ISCII to Unicode, Unicode to ISCII, ISCII to ITRANS, ITRANS to ISCII, and TSCII to Unicode. All five programs provide fairly extensive checking of their input for errors and untranslatable codes. The ITRANS used is, by default, extended to include codes for the Tamil digits and to include HZ escapes (as defined in RFC 1843) that delimit the Tamil portion. This allows processing of mixed Tamil and ASCII text. The extensions and use of HZ escapes can be disabled by command-line switches.
