This sample demonstrates
Opening and closing converters using the C api
String manipulation in C
Writing a custom conversion callback function
convsamp.c Main source file
flagcb.h codepage output convenience header
flagcb.c codepage output convenience implementation
ucnv.sln Windows MSVC workspace. Double-click this to get started.
ucnv.vcproj Windows MSVC project file
To Build ucnv on Windows
1. Install and build ICU
2. In MSVC, open the workspace file icu\samples\ucnv\ucnv.sln
3. Choose a Debug or Release build.
4. Build.
To Run on Windows
1. Start a command shell window
2. Add ICU's bin directory to the path, e.g.
set PATH=c:\icu\bin;%PATH%
(Use the path to where ever ICU is on your system.)
3. cd into the ufortune directory, e.g.
cd c:\icu\source\samples\ucnv\debug
4. Run it
WARNING: The .bin and .txt files must be in the same directory as the executable, which is not the case by default on some systems.
To Build on Unixes
1. Build ICU.
Specify an ICU install directory when running configure,
using the --prefix option. The steps to build ICU will look something
like this:
cd <icu directory>/source
runConfigureICU <platform-name> --prefix <icu install directory> [other options]
gmake all
2. Install ICU,
gmake install
3. Build
set the variable ICU_PREFIX=<icu install>
gmake all
To Run on Unixes
cd <icu directory>/source/samples/ucnv
gmake check
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=<icu install directory>/lib:.:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH
Note: The name of the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable is different on some systems.
If in doubt, run the sample using "gmake check", and note the name of
the variable that is used there. LD_LIBRARY_PATH is the correct name
for Linux and Solaris.
