utfout is a command-line tool that can produce UTF-8 (Unicode) strings in various ways and direct them to standard output, standard error, or direct to the terminal without the need for shell support. Strings can be repeated, delayed, randomly-generated, written to arbitrary file descriptors, interspersed with other characters, and generated using ranges. printf(1)-style escape sequences are supported along with extended escape sequences. utfout(1) sits somewhere between echo(1) and printf(1).
The Courier Unicode Library implements several algorithms related to the Unicode Standard: look up of uppercase, lowercase, and titlecase equivalents of a Unicode character, grapheme and work breaking rules, line breaking rules, and several other related functions. The library also implements C++ bindings for these algorithms.
conv2047 is a very simple RFC 2047 Unicode email header field converter. It reads header lines from standard input and tries to decode or encode them. Operation modes: -d decode (MIME-Header --> UTF-8) and -e encode (UTF-8 --> MIME-Header). The -c option can concatenate multiple output lines into 1.
