Up to 14 different encodings are used to represent texts in Russian language (koi-7, koi-8r, cp866, cp1251, cp10007, utf-8, ...)! This program can perform conversion between them. It also can produce Unicode names for the symbol codes.
This program may also be used for transliteration (reversible
substitution Cyrillic letters by Latin ones). Transliteration is the only
way to make deal with Russian texts on the system without Cyrillic fonts.
RUCNV knows two types of transliteration: GOST 7.79-2000
and KOI-7 based.
RUCNV may be used for conversion any Russian or Unicode texts
into the form which will be accepted by any 8-bit text editor and for
followed backward conversion.
