The conversion data has two components: The conversion mapping between specific character encodings. A pivot file, which the possible source and destination encoding pairs or the set of mappings to use for a compound encoding.

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.
