Running the ICU makeconv Utility

Running the ICU makeconv Utility

The makeconv utility converts a source code page definition from a UCM file into a binary CNV file.
The makeconv utility is an open source program that is available from the ICU Web site.
The makeconv utility embeds the ICU version number into the CNV file name.
If you created custom code pages with earlier versions of ICU, you must regenerate the CNV files using the V900 version of the makeconv utility.
Use the following syntax to run the makeconv utility and build a binary CNV file for the code page
makeconv -p ICUDATA
When you run the V900 version of the makeconv utility, The generated .cnv file names are prefixed with the letters PM. For example, if you run the makeconv utility for the code page
, the generated file is named PM
You can use the makeconv utility on the following systems:
  • i5/OS. On i5/OS, the makeconv utility runs as a *PGM from a SBMJOB command.
  • UNIX and Linux.
  • Windows.
  • z/OS. On z/OS, the makeconv utility runs within the HFS UNIX system.
