|Description:||Converts text between Unicode and ASCII (4.18-1)|
uni2ascii and ascii2uni convert between UTF-8 Unicode and more than a dozen 7-bit ASCII equivalents including: hexadecimal and decimal HTML numeric character references, \u-escapes, standard hexadecimal, raw hexadecimal, and RFC2396 URI format. Such ASCII equivalents are encountered in a variety of circumstances, such as when Unicode text is included in program source, when entering text into Web programs that can handle the Unicode character set but are not 8-bit safe, and when debugging.
