There are five executables included, that all have the exact same usage and arguments:
You may either redirect or pipe input into unormalize (and its buddies), or provide filenames as arguments.
- -f FORM/--form=FORM
- Selects the normalization form: one of NFC, NFD, NFKC, or NFKD. The equivalently named executables imply their respective normalization form; unormalize is equivilent to nfk without the --form arugment.
- -i EXTENSION/--in-place EXTENSION
- Filenames must be specified as arguments. If so, this opens them, and converts them into the desired normalization form, in place. EXTENSION is the extension given to back-ups of the original files.
Convert clipboard contents to NFC (OS X):
$ pbpaste | nfc | pbcopy
Convert a file, in-place, to NFKD:
$ nfkd --in-place=.bak file.txt && rm file.txt.bak
Convert circled, variants, and half-widths to their compatible forms:
$ echo 'ℍ①ｶ' | nfkc H1カ
