Tools for the conversion to and from UTF-8 Unicode encoding

Tools for the conversion to and from UTF-8 Unicode encoding. Note that RFC-2277 mandates that all “protocols” MUST handle UTF-8 properly.

- utrans converts text files created using any 8-bit character
  map into UTF-8;

- uhtrans converts UTF-8 files into 7-bit ASCII with anything
  else formatted as an HTML-style tags, e.g. Ӓ decimal;

- hutrans converts 7-bit ASCII files with HTML-style tags, to UTF-8,
  thus complementing the functionality of hutrans;

- ptrans converts UTF-8 files into 8-bit text using any
  8-bit character map, thus complementing utrans.

Additionally, tuc is installed if not found. Tuc converts text files between the DOS/Windows and the Unix formats.
