Find out what is in a Unicode file
Useful tools when working with Unicode files when one doesn't know the writing system, doesn't have the necessary font, needs to inspect invisible characters, needs to find out whether characters have been combined or in what order they occur, or needs statistics on which characters occur.
uninamedefaults to printing the character offset of each character, its byte offset, its hex code value, its encoding, the glyph itself, and its name. It may also be used to validate UTF-8 input.
unidescreports the character ranges to which different portions of the text belong. It can also be used to identify Unicode encodings (e.g. UTF-16be) flagged by magic numbers.
unihistgenerates a histogram of the characters in its input.
