rux is a simple, yet powerful Cyrillic recoding utility. At present time several the most popular Cyrillic code pages such as koi8-r, cp866, cp1251, iso8859-5 and mac-cyrillic are supported. Also rux gives the opportunity to recode box- drawing characters, which exists in some Cyrillic code pages, to replace them by their non-graphic analogues ('-', '+', etc.).
Besides, the rux can detect a code page of the input files automatically.
Usually rux is used without any options because some values are accepted by default. There are -o koi8-r, -e, -t.
The expectancy value of the presence of every Cyrillic characters in the some text were taken from the dump of Russian translation of the `FreeBSD Handbook'.
