GENCFU(1) ICU 74.2 Manual GENCFU(1)

gencfu - Generates Unicode Confusable data files

gencfu [ -h, -?, --help ] [ -V, --version ] [ -c, --copyright ] [ -v, --verbose ] [ -d, --destdir destination ] [ -i, --icudatadir directory ] -r, --rules rule-file -w, --wsrules whole-script-rule-file -o, --out output-file

gencfu reads confusable character definitions in the input file, which are plain text files containing confusable character definitions in the input format defined by Unicode UAX39 for the files confusables.txt and confusablesWholeScript.txt. This source (.txt) format is also accepted by ICU spoof detectors. The files must be encoded in utf-8 format, with or without a BOM. Normally the output data file has the .cfu extension.
