reads each of the supplied filename
and writes out a C
file containing a compilable definition of the data in the data file. The C
file name is made by taking the base name of the data filename
replacing dots by underscores, and adding a .c
If the -a
option is used, platform specific assembly code is generated
instead of C code. Most C compilers will accept both C and assembly files.
Instead of writing a filename with a .c
file extension, a filename with
will be written instead.
is called with no filename
it terminates gracefully.
- -h, -?, --help
- Print help about usage and exit.
- -a, --assembly name
- Output assembly code instead of C code. Use -h to
see the list of available types of assembly to generate and to specify for
- -d, --destdir
- Set the destination directory to destination. The
default destination directory is the current directory.
- -n, --name name
- Set the data name to name instead of the default.
This name is also used as the base name of the output. The default name is
made of the icudt prefix, followed by a two-digit version number
corresponding to the current version of the ICU release, and a single
letter indicating the endianness of the data (the letter b
indicated big endian data, and the letter l indicates little endian
- -f, --filename name
- Normally, an ICU data file such as mydata.icu will be
turned into mydata_icu.c and mydata_icu.o. However, if this parameter was
set to "somedata", the output files will be somedata.o and
- -e, --entrypoint
- Set the data entry point (used for linking against the data
in a shared library form) to name. The default entry point name is
made of the data (set by the -n, --name option)
followed by an underscore and the type of the data (set by the
-t, --type option).
