teckit 2.5.9 Toolkit for encoding conversions
TECkit is a low-level toolkit intended to be used by other applications that need to perform encoding conversions (e.g., when importing legacy data into a Unicode-based application). The primary component of the TECkit package is therefore a library that performs conversions; this is the "TECkit engine". The engine relies on mapping tables in a specific binary format (for which documentation is available); there is a compiler that creates such tables from a human-readable mapping description (a simple text file).
To facilitate the development and testing of mapping tables for TECkit, several applications are also included in the current package; these include simple tools for applying conversions to plain-text and Standard Format files, as well as both command-line and simple GUI versions of the TECkit compiler. However, it is not intended that these tools will be the primary means by which end users perform conversions, and they have not been designed, tested, and debugged to the extent that general-purpose applications should be.
