NAME

ExplicateUTF8 - Explain the status of a sequence of bytes as a UTF8 encoding

SYNOPSIS

ExplicateUTF8 ((-o <byte offset>) <file name>)

DESCRIPTION

ExplicateUTF8 examines its input and determines whether it begins with a valid UTF8 Unicode sequence. If the sequence is invalid, it explains why. If the sequence is valid, it explains why the sequence is valid, gives the equivalent UTF-32 code, and explains how this value was computed.
If no input file name is supplied, ExplicateUTF8 reads from the standard input.

COMMAND LINE FLAGS

-h

-o <byte offset>
