  Description     : Programs for finding out what is in a Unicode file.
Four programs for finding out what is in a Unicode file.
They are useful 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.
* uniname defaults 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.
* unidesc reports 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.
* unihist generates a histogram of the characters in its input.
* ExplicateUTF8 is intended for debugging or for learning about Unicode.
It determines and explains the validity of a sequence of bytes as a UTF8
