Description : Utility for producing UTF-8 output to standard streams and terminal.
Command-line tool that can produce UTF-8 (Unicode) strings in various ways and
direct them to standard output, standard error or direct to the terminal
without the need for shell support. Strings can be repeated, delayed,
randomly-generated, written to arbitrary file descriptors, interspersed with
other characters and generated using ranges. Printf(1)-style escape
sequences are supported along with extended escape sequences.
This utility sits somewhere between echo(1) and printf(1) in
functionality with a dash of seq(1) thrown in.
Many example are given in the manual page ('man/out.1') and in the initial blog post:
