descriptionASV to USV: Convert ASCII Separated Values (ASV) to Unicode Separated Values (USV) such as for data markup, including for spreadsheets, databases, text files, and more.
Joel Parker Henderson (joelparkerhenderson)



# asv-to-usv Convert [ASCII Separated Values (ASV)]( to [Unicode Separated Values (USV)]( Built with the [USV Rust crate]( Syntax: ```sh stdin | asv-to-usv | stdout ``` Example: ```sh cat example.asv | asv-to-usv ``` More examples below. ## Options Options for USV separators and modifiers: * -u, --unit-separator : Set the unit separator (US) string. * -r, --record-separator : Set the record separator (RS) string. * -g, --group-separator : Set the group separator (GS) string. * -f, --file-separator : Set the file separator (FS) string. * -e, --escape : Set the escape (ESC) string. * -z, --end-of-transmission : Set the end of transmission (EOT) string. Options for USV style: * --style-braces : Set the style to use braces, such as "{US}" for Unit Separator. * --style-controls : Set the style to use controls, such as "\u001F" for Unit Separator. * --style-symbols : Set the style to use symbols, such as "␟" for Unit Separator. Options for USV layout: * --layout-0: Show each item with no line around it. This is no layout, in other words one long line. * --layout-1: Show each item with one line around it. This is like single-space lines for long form text. * --layout-2: Show each item with two lines around it. This is like double-space lines for long form text. * --layout-units: Show each unit on one line. This can be helpful for line-oriented tools. * --layout-records: Show each record on one line. This is like a typical spreadsheet sheet export. * --layout-groups: Show each group on one line. This can be helpful for folio-oriented tools. * --layout-files: Show one file on one line. This can be helpful for archive-oriented tools. Options for command line tools: * -h, --help : Print help * -V, --version : Print version * -v, --verbose... : Set the verbosity level: 0=none, 1=error, 2=warn, 3=info, 4=debug, 5=trace. Example: --verbose … * --test : Print test output for debugging, verifying, tracing, and the like. Example: --test ## Install Install: ```sh cargo install asv-to-usv ``` Link: []( ## Example Suppose example.asv contains: ```asv a\u001Fb\u001Ec\u001Fd\u001E ``` Run: ```sh cat example.asv | asv-to-usv ``` Output: ```usv a␟b␟␞ c␟d␟␞ ``` If you prefer to render no newlines, which is more like the input: ```sh cat example.csv | asv-to-usv --layout-0 ``` Output: ```usv a␟b␟␞c␟d␟␞ ``` If you prefer to render markers with braces, to see the markers more easily: ```sh cat example.csv | asv-to-usv --style-braces ``` Output: ```usv a{US}b{US}{RS} c{US}d{US}{RS} ``` ## FAQ ### What converters are available? * [asv-to-usv]( & [usv-to-asv]( * [csv-to-usv]( & [usv-to-csv]( * [json-to-usv]( & [usv-to-json]( * [xlsx-to-usv]( & [usv-to-xlsx]( ### When to use this command? Use this command when you want to convert from ASV to USV. A typical use case is when you have ASV data, such as a collection of units and records, and you want to convert it to USV data, such as for visual editing. Our real-world use case is converting a bunch of document-oriented data from a variety of programs to a variety of data formats, spreadsheets, and databases. ### Why use USV instead of ASV? See the documentation for [USV]( ### Is USV aiming to become a standard? Yes, USV is submitted to as an Internet-Draft work in progress: [link]( ### Can I build my own USV tools? Yes, and you may freely use the [USV RFC]( and [USV Rust crate]( ## Help wanted Constructive feedback welcome.
