NAME
       native2ascii - Native-to-ASCII Converter

       Converts a file with native-encoded characters (characters which are
       non-Latin 1 and non-Unicode) to one with Unicode-encoded characters.

SYNOPSIS
       native2ascii [options] [inputfile [outputfile]]


DESCRIPTION
       The Java compiler and other Java tools can only process files which
       contain Latin-1 and/or Unicode-encoded (\udddd notation) characters.
       native2ascii converts files which contain other character encodings
       into files containing Latin-1 and/or Unicode-encoded charaters.

       If outputfile is omitted, standard output is used for output. If, in
       addition, inputfile is omitted, standard input is used for input.

OPTIONS
       -reverse
          Perform the reverse operation: convert a file with Latin-1 and/or
          Unicode encoded characters to one with native-encoded characters.

       -encoding encoding_name
          Specify the encoding name which is used by the conversion procedure.
          The default encoding is taken from System property file.encoding.
          The encoding_name string must be taken from the first column of the
          table of supported encodings in the Supported Encodings @
          http://java.sun.com/javase/6/docs/technotes/guides/intl/encoding.doc.html
          document.

       -Joption
          Pass option to the Java virtual machine, where option is one of the
          options described on the reference page for the java application
          launcher. For example, -J-Xms48m sets the startup memory to 48
          megabytes.
