       man-recode - convert manual pages to another encoding

       man-recode -t to-code {--suffix=suffix|--in-place} [-dqhV] [filename]

       man-recode converts multiple manual pages from one encoding to another,
       guessing the appropriate input encoding for each  one.   It  is  useful
       when permanently recoding pages written in legacy character sets, or in
       build systems that need to recode a set of pages to a single common en-
       coding  (usually  UTF-8) for installation.  When converting many manual
       pages, this program is much faster than running man --recode or manconv
       on each page.

       If an encoding declaration is found on the first line of a manual page,
       then that declaration is used as the  input  encoding  for  that  page.
       Failing that, the input encoding is guessed based on the file name.

       Encoding declarations have the following form:

              '\" -*- coding: UTF-8 -*-

       or (if manual page preprocessors are also to be declared):

              '\" t -*- coding: ISO-8859-1 -*-

       -t encoding, --to-code=encoding
              Convert manual pages to encoding.

              Form each output file name by appending suffix to the input file
              name, after removing any compression extension.

              Overwrite each input file with the output,  after  removing  any
              compression extension.

       -q, --quiet
              Do not issue error messages when the page cannot be converted.

       -d, --debug
              Print debugging information.

       -h, --help
              Print a help message and exit.

       -V, --version
              Display version information.
