Description

Enca (Extremely Naive Charset Analyser) consists of two main components:

  • libenca, an encoding detection library. It currently supports Belarusian, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Estonian, Hungarian, Latvian, Lithuanian, Polish, Russian, Slovak, Slovene, Ukrainian, Chinese, and some multibyte encodings independently on language. The API should be relatively stable (to be read as `it will either change only marginally, or very drastically').

  • enca, a command line frontend, integrating libenca and several charset conversion libraries and tools (GNU recode, UNIX98 iconv, perl Unicode::Map, cstocs).

Installation

Enca should compile and work on every POSIX.1 compliant system with ISO C compiler, and actually compiles on many noncompliant systems too (see below for list dependencies). If you have some of following additional tools, Enca can use them as external converters:

  • GNU recode and the associated recoding library
  • Perl charset converters Unicode::Map8 or Unicode::Map
  • cstocs, the famous Czech charset converter

Optional features:

  • Compilation of GNU recode library interface is controlled by

    --with-librecode[=DIR]
    ,
    --without-librecode
    configure parameters. It is compiled in by default when found. Optionally, you can specify a DIR; librecode include files will be then searched in DIR/include and the library itself in DIR/lib.
  • Compilation of UNIX98 iconv interface is controlled by

    --with-libiconv=[DIR]
    ,
    --without-libiconv
    configure parameters. It is compiled in by default when found and considered usable. Optionally, you can specify a DIR; libiconv include files will be then searched in DIR/include and the library itself in DIR/lib.
  • Compilation of interface to external converter programs is controlled by

    --enable-external
    ,
    --disable-external
    configure parameters. By default is is compiled in.

Don't even try to compile Enca on system not supporting following ISO C and POSIX features: * Function prototypes. * Basic ISO C headers and functions declared there: - assert.h, ctype.h, math.h, stdarg.h, stdio.h, stdlib.h - any (working) one of string.h, strings.h, memory.h - unistd.h, sys/stat.h, sys/types.h

For the impatient: Run

./configure
make
make check
make install

as usual.

Hacking (with) Enca

Please see TODO for list of things that should be fixed and features to be implemented and their priority and also for list of things that definitely shouldn't be implemented.

The file DEVELOP.md describes what needs to be done to add a new encoding or language to Enca.

The directory devel-docs/html contains Enca library API documentation in HTML form.
