The conversion data has two components: The conversion mapping between specific character encodings.

The following options are available:
-d Turns on debug mode.
-m Generate mapping data from infile.
-o outfile
  Put generated binary data to outfile.
-p Generate pivot data from outfile.


The mkcsmapper utility exits 0 on success, and >0 if an error occurs.

As soon as we started programming, we found to our surprise that it wasn't as easy to get programs right as we had thought. Debugging had to be discovered. I can remember the exact instant when I realized that a large part of my life from then on was going to be spent in finding mistakes in my own programs.
